Grid Computing is an emerging computing model that provides the ability to perform higher throughput computing by taking advantage of many networked computers to model a virtual computer architecture that is able to distribute process execution across a parallel infrastructure. Grids use the resources of many separate computers connected by a network (usually the Internet) to solve large-scale computation problems.
With tougher regulations and continuing market volatility, financial firms are moving to active risk management with a focus on counterparty risk. Join IBM Algorithmics and IBM Platform Computing to gain insights on this trend and on technologies for enabling active "real-time" risk management.
IBM Platform Computing Cloud Service lets users economically add computing capacity by accessing ready-to-use clusters in the cloud-delivering high performance that compares favorably to cloud offerings from other providers. Tests show that the IBM service delivers the best (or ties for the best) absolute performance in all test categories. Learn More.
This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.

Layered Tech's engineers created a customized package of virtual private data centers (VPDCs), managed services and disaster recovery solutions that support KANA's clients, large and small. Layered Tech tailored the architecture to meet the highest enterprise security requirements, as well as ensuring that each KANA client can deploy applications that scale to ongoing volume fluctuations.
This Cloud Computing Trends Report provided insight into the expectations small, medium and large businesses have of cloud computing, their intended uses, reasons for adopting, and expected time-frames for implementing cloud-based solutions.
Independent research firm Knowledge Integrity Inc. examine two high performance computing technologies that are transitioning into the mainstream: high performance massively parallel analytical database management systems (ADBMS) and distributed parallel programming paradigms, such as MapReduce, (Hadoop, Pig, and HDFS, etc.). By providing an overview of both concepts and looking at how the two approaches can be used together, they conclude that combining a high performance batch programming and execution model with an high performance analytical database provides significant business benefits for a number of different types of applications.
SAS Grid Computing delivers enterprise-class capabilities that enable SAS applications to automatically leverage grid computing, run faster and takes optimal advantage of computing resources. With grid computing as an automatic capability, it is easier and more cost-effective to allocate compute-intensive applications appropriately across computing systems. SAS Grid Manager helps automate the management of SAS Computing Grids with dynamic load balancing, resource assignment and monitoring, and job priority and termination management.
