Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and private cloud workload management software, today announced the winners of its first annual Adaptie Awards. Given to organizations and individuals that continually push the technological envelope, the Adaptie Awards were presented at MoabCon 2013, Adaptive Computing’s annual user conference in Park City, Utah.
Adaptie recipients included:
Best Use of Moab in a Private Cloud – Bank of America
The world’s leading financial institution was honored for using Adaptive Computing’s Moab Cloud Suite for its innovative, high density, service oriented virtualized compute platform – one of the most advanced, large scale privately managed ventures of its kind.
Best Use of Moab in HPC – National Oceanic and Atmospheric
The federal agency was honored for its pioneering use of Adaptive Computing’s Moab HPC Suite to develop better models for predicting climate variability and change.
Lifetime Achievement – Don Maxwell, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The HPC systems team lead at ORNL was honored for his contributions to the HPC industry. Maxwell was instrumental in providing both requirements and testing for the initial port of Moab to the Cray X-series platform. He was awarded the ACM Gordon Bell Prize in 2008 as a member of a team led by Thomas Schulthess that used the ORNL Jaguar supercomputer to achieve 400+ TFlop/s sustained performance. Jaguar ran the Moab HPC Suite, and now, Maxwell uses the Moab HPC Suite on Titan, ORNL’s latest supercomputer, which was declared the world’s fastest in the latest semiannual TOP500 list, securing the No. 1 position.
“I am deeply honored by this recognition,” said Maxwell. “As a long-time Adaptive customer, it is very rewarding to collaborate alongside them on industry challenges and seek solutions to the world’s most complex scientific problems – from climate change to efficient fuels. Moab is the perfect complement for our system and has enabled me to continually stretch the capabilities of supercomputing throughout my career.”
“The Adaptie Awards provide a platform to recognize our customers for their cutting-edge achievements in the HPC and cloud communities,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “The myriad applications of Moab is truly inspiring, and we are proud to count such esteemed individuals and organizations as our customers.”

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?
"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.
They are not.
One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...
