UberCloud Voice December 2017

Amazon rules the public cloud, but Google, Microsoft, Alibaba are growing faster

AWS3Jefferies analyst John DiFucci introduced a quarterly snapshot of public cloud services, and found that 7 large cloud-service providers are taking in about 86% of the revenue for public cloud services. For the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) segments, those seven companies, in order of booked revenue, are Amazon AWS, Microsoft, IBM, Alphabet (Google), Alibaba, Salesforce.com, and Oracle. DiFucci based his rankings on annualized revenue based on the company’s last quarterly report and compared that to 2017 estimates from research and advisory company Gartner. Of the seven companies, DiFucci said they generated $35.8 billion in IaaS/PaaS revenue, representing 54% year-over-year growth, compared with the $41.8 billion estimated market in 2017 by Gartner. The gist of this story is that while AWS is the cloud leader, if you factor in IaaS, PaaS and SaaS then Microsoft has the largest share at 31%. Read Wallace Witkowski’s MarketWatch article HERE.

Missed SC’17 in Denver? Read Univa’s Top 5 for SC’17

If you missed the SC’17 conference and exhibition this year in Denver, and you are interested in seamless hybrid workload management across on-premise and public cloud resources, then we recommend reading Ian Lumb’s “Top Five”. Ian, who is Univa’s Solutions Architect, reflects on Univa’s ongoing success in the workload management space and their recent focus on Cloud HPC: “Speaking of HPC-in-the-cloud and adding in containers, it’s difficult to arrive at a more-compelling demonstration than that achieved through our collaboration with UberCloud“. He also mentioned several recent updates on Univa Grid Engine technology, and touched on their SC’17 booth highlight, the PINK F1 car which you can admire at their HPCwire video.Univa at SC17

Bill Mannel, HPE: The Living Heart Project Wins Three Prestigious Awards for Stanford’s HPC Cloud Simulations

Living Heart Project-logo-Gen1-gif-180x140Bill Mannel, VP & GM, HPC Segment Solutions and Apollo Servers, Data Center Infrastructure Group, and AI at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, writes in his HPCwire article from December 20: “Operations like the Living Heart Project are uniting industry-leading researchers, doctors, educators, and technology manufacturers to reach a higher standard for personalized medicine. Leveraging advanced modeling and simulation capabilities, the Living Heart Project has developed highly accurate, validated models of the human heart which can be personalized by patients’ unique traits and conditions. The Living Heart Project is a growing ecosystem that is fueling the collaborative development of commercially available heart models and exploring novel digital therapies.

UberCloud Case Study: Prediction of Barehull Resistance Curve of a Day-Cruise Ship in the Cloud

Team 188 minThis case study is about calculating the barehull resistance of a day-cruise ship in the cloud with a standard hull form used as a benchmark for computational fluid dynamics in the marine industry.  Hull form parameters and experimental results are available and owned by CCTO.  The purpose of this project was to become familiar with the mechanics of running a NUMECA FINE/Marine simulation in an UberCloud container and to assess the performance of the cloud compared to resources currently used by the end-user.  The benchmark was analyzed on local hardware, on virtual instances in the cloud, and on the bare-metal cloud solution offered by CPU 24/7 and UberCloud.

Microsoft Spins Cycle Computing into Core Azure Product

Cycle MicrosoftLast August, cloud giant Microsoft acquired HPC cloud orchestration pioneer Cycle Computing. Since then the focus has been on integrating Cycle’s organization, mapping out its new role as a core Microsoft Azure product, and deciding what to do with those Cycle customers who currently use non-Azure cloud providers. At SC17, HPCwire caught up with Brett Tanzer, head of Microsoft Azure Specialized Compute Group (ASCG, which used to be Big Compute) in which Cycle now lives, and Tim Carroll, formerly Cycle VP of sales and ecosystem development and now a ‘principal’ in ASCG, for a snapshot of emerging plans for Cycle.
