UberCloud Voice January 2014

60-Second Video about the UberCloud Marketplace

Data analysts, engineers, and scientists do some pretty cool stuff on their workstations, such as designing and develop new products. As the math and physics models that they need become more sophisticated, the resources of the workstations fall short and the execution time increases. This can be very frustrating! See how engineers and scientists can discover on the UberCloud how access to compute power can boost their productivity through case studies and forums. Also available are free hands-on trials and our no hassle marketplace when the user is ready to buy:


CFD Helps Ferrari Race to Victory

Ferrari_1_opt500Auto racing R&D never stops. From each physical experience, you learn something that will help you improve your design for the next season, and the seasons after that. Deadlines are tight. You need to go with a design straight to a physical event. And that means your simulations must be as fast, accurate and true to your target as possible. This article reports about the CFD and FEA software tools which Ferrari uses to improve the performance of their grand turismo race cars. Please read article by  Anthony J. Lockwood here.


The $1000 Genome – A Computational Perspective


January 15, 2014 – By Glenn Lockwood. Getting meaningful insight out of a person’s genome doesn’t stop when the sequencer finishes generating data for a sample; the process of transforming that raw read data into an aligned genome invariably requires a significant amount of computation too.  In the past, this has generally been a task that could be satisfied on a beefy workstation and it was easy to overlook the computational implications when new sequencing technologies took the spotlight.  However, it now seems like we’re rapidly approaching a point where high-end computational infrastructure needs to share the stage with emerging sequencing technology.

Simulation Visualization Confronts the Digital Data Monster

2014Jan_BigdataFig1_opt500January 1, 204 – The problem of massive or big data is especially prevalent in aerospace. Colorado-based Escape Dynamics aspires to develop the first single-stage-to-orbit reusable vehicle. Dmitriy Tseliakhovich, the company’s co-founder, CEO and CTO, explains that the big data in aerospace “often corresponds to large number of degrees of freedom and large number of system components that need to be simulated and optimized. This leads to a demand for a large number of simulation runs and the ability to analyze, store and share data.”

Recently, it is observed that nearly all aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) practice system-level simulation. This new approach advocates the treatment of all related parts as a whole. Therefore, it forces engineers to once more confront the digital data monster. How do you load, display, share and collaborate on gigabytes of simulation results? It’s a conundrum that some are solving with a mix of remote visualization, lightweight file formats, and cloud streaming.

The Top Supercomputing Led Discoveries of 2013

January 2, 2014 –   2013 has been an incredible year for the entire ecosystem around supercomputing; from vendors pushing new technologies to boost performance, capacity, and programmability to researchers turning over new insights with fresh techniques. There are plenty of signs that production HPC environments are blazing plenty of new trails.

As the calendar flips into 2014, Nicole Hemsoth, Managing Editor of HPCwire, wanted to cast a backward glance at select discoveries and opportunities made possible by the fastest systems in the world and the people who run them—all pulled from HPCwire’s  news archives of the past year along some important thematic lines. Over 30 examples of how supercomputers are set to change the world in 2014 and beyond are pulled together, including sevarl examples from digital manufacturing.
