New Version of Maple Offers Unprecedented Levels of Computational Abilities and Performance











Maple 15 has over 270 new mathematical functions and over a thousand enhancements to existing algorithms


Waterloo, Canada (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011

Maplesoft™ today announced a substantial new release of its flagship product, Maple™, the technical computing software for mathematicians, engineers, and scientists. With over 270 new mathematical functions and over a thousand enhancements to existing algorithms, customers can solve more complex problems faster than ever before.

Maple 15 is second to none in terms of scalability and performance, due to highly efficient fundamental operations, sophisticated algorithms for advanced operations, and numerous options to fully leverage the power of multi-core computers. It can also compute symbolic solutions to differential equations that no other system can handle, and now solves an unprecedented 96% of the benchmark standard for differential equations, putting it far ahead of the nearest competitor.

With Maple 15, users can work effectively with large datasets and create even more compelling interactive applications using the new data table. With the new variable manager, they can gain greater control over their Maple sessions, quickly assessing the state of their computations.

Customers can also take advantage of the latest in interactive Clickable Math™ tools, including over 40 new mini-demonstrations for exploring and illustrating common mathematical concepts.

“Maple 15 is the most important Maple release in the last 5 years, and we are very excited to be able to share it with our customers,” says Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist, Maplesoft. “We know they face challenging problems every day, from designing the Mars Exploration Rovers to teaching the fundamentals of calculus. We are proud that the improvements in Maple 15 will make an important contribution to their success.”

“Maple is a system that involves a lot of different pieces – the math, the programming tools, the point-and-click tools, the technical documentation features, the teaching resources, connectivity features, etc.,” says Dr. Harald Kammerer, a Maple user for 20 years and Head of R&D, GERB, Germany. “Maple 15 includes important enhancements in every single one of these areas. No matter what you are using Maple for, or how you are using it, you will find something here of value.”

Horizon Data Center Solutions Adds Virtualization Tools to Enhance Government and Enterprise IT Department Abilities

Horizon Data Center Solutions Adds Virtualization Tools to Enhance Government and Enterprise IT Department Abilities

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 13, 2011

Horizon Data Center Solutions has completed the full integration of VMware’s vCloud Director, adding new capabilities to its vStructure enterprise-class Infrastructure as a Service offering. For many existing VMware customers, including those using vSphere, this introduces an entirely new means of deploying, provisioning and managing the capacity of virtual environments.

“Traditionally, customers would come to providers like Horizon and create a new environment within our vStructure IaaS platform to complement their own internal virtualization efforts. They would then have two completely separate environments to manage and maintain,” says Lance Black, Chief Executive Officer of Horizon. “VMware’s vCloud Director allows a paradigm shift in that equation. Customers now can acquire a pool of resources from Horizon and manage those resources as their own from their existing management console. It’s truly an extension of their own environment. That’s game-changing.”

VMware vCloud Director is a software solution at the data center level that makes secure, multi-tenant private clouds available by pooling the infrastructure resources into virtual datacenters that businesses can access through web portals. The software makes it possible for IT organizations to supplement their internal business units with external capacity upon demand from a desktop application.

“Businesses want the ability to expand and contract their resources based on their internal data needs or external promotions or traffic demands. Horizon can now provide that external capacity in a way that is seamlessly tied to existing virtualized environments,” Black says. “It puts functionality and control into the hands of the enterprise and sets Horizon up as a pure IaaS play, which is perfect for both parties.”

Black says organizations will also benefit from the ability to use vCloud Director in conjunction with virtual disaster recovery. “It’s not only a great option for extending and scaling production environments – the ability to scale resources makes it very appealing for standing up virtual DR environments that sit in storage until needed. When required, the disaster recovery environment can be activated and managed from the same management console.”

Horizon is a leader in providing virtualized cloud computing technologies to both businesses and government entities. The company is one of just 11 providers of cloud computing services to the GSA, and it is the first cloud computing provider on the Government’s SEWP IV procurement contract. Black says cloud computing helps to reduce costs for hardware and infrastructure and increase efficiencies in the government.

In addition to providing government cloud computing, Horizon works with businesses of all sizes, from the small to medium sized business with fluctuating capacity needs to major corporate entities with massive operations. Horizon’s IaaS offering is supported by a network of world class data centers located in Dallas, Texas and Northern Virginia.
