Cluster Resources Wins Largest Cluster and Grid Management Contract in History Provides Moab Site License to the U.S. Department of Energy

Provo, UT (PRWEB) August 10, 2006

Cluster Resources, Inc., a leading provider of cluster, grid and utility computing software, announced today that the Department of Energys National Nuclear Security Administrations Advanced Simulation and Computing Program has selected Cluster Resources Moab workload and resource management software ( as a standard for use across NNSAs high performance computing systems.

The Advanced Simulation and Computing Program (ASC) unites the high performance computing expertise and capabilities of the national labs responsible for ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nations stockpile of nuclear weapons without testing. ASC, also known as Tri-Labs consists of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Sandia National Laboratories. ASC currently has the number 1, 3, 6 and 9 largest systems in the TOP500 Supercomputing list, as well as dozens of other systems equating to approximately 25% of the TOP500s total CPU count (

Cluster Resources is honored to be selected by ASC, said David Jackson, CEO of Cluster Resources, Inc. There is no organization in the world which matches the technical expertise and scope of compute systems found at ASC in terms of scalability and architectural complexity.

This agreement brings two industry leaders together. ASC is widely acknowledged for their leadership in successfully deploying next-generation massive architectures, networks and storage solutions, as well as their research and expertise in scalable middleware. Cluster Resources provides industry leadership in intelligent workload and resource management that orchestrates compute, network, and storage resources, in order to maximize utilization, availability and responsiveness. The ASC/Cluster Resources partnership will push innovation boundaries for the Supercomputing / High Performance Computing (HPC) industry on both current and future leadership-class systems.

Assessing Resource and Workload Management Solutions

ASC initiated the search for a common resource and workload management solution to improve usability and manageability of their diverse resources and to attain an improved return on their significant computing investment. In addition, the program also sought enhanced reporting for managed resources and to optimize resource utilization while maintaining the flexibility required to meet the individual needs of each site and project. ASC has a highly heterogeneous environment with systems that range from large scale Intel and AMD Opteron-based systems provided by IBM, HP, Dell and others, to more exotic and powerful systems such as Crays XT3 and IBMs Blue Gene. Going into the assessment, ASC also had a high degree of knowledge in the resource management space due to their development of advanced resource management and scheduling tools such as BProc, SLURM (, and LCRM.

ASCs expertise, from their own extensive research and development work and from managing the world's largest array of leadership class systems, makes this review and selection a great honor, Jackson said. What makes this selection so meaningful is that this organization knows supercomputing, knows the real world and is able to see through the marketing fluff that can be so prevalent. Not only does this speak well of Cluster Resources Moab product line and our service capabilities, but it also provides significant value to us as we collaborate with these thought leaders to develop capabilities for the next generation of systems and enhance our ability to meet their current and future needs.

The Selected Solution

The awarded contract grants ASC use of Moab software, which provides workload management, system accounting, capacity planning, automated failure recovery, virtualization and a host of other capabilities in cluster, grid, and utility computing environments. In addition, the contract also includes collaborative research and development, consulting, 24/7 support and other professional services.

The Moab solution adds significant manageability and optimization to HPC resources, while providing deployment methods that effectively minimize the risk and cost of adoption. Unique Moab capabilities allow it to be transparently deployed with little or no impact on the end-user; these capabilities include system workload, resource, and policy simulation, batch language translation, capacity planning diagnostics, non-intrusive test facilities, and infrastructure stress testing.

At the core of this solution is Moab Cluster Suite

Zephyr’s New Audit-Free 3270 Enterprise Licenses End License Compliance Hassles

Zephyr's New Audit-Free 3270 Enterprise Licenses End License Compliance Hassles

Terminal Emulation for Windows 7

Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2010

Banks, insurance companies, state governments and other large IBM 3270 mainframe users stand to gain enormous financial benefits with the Zephyr approach to software licensing.

Zephyr's new Enterprise License Plans include all of the following:

Audit-free, hassle-free licensing ends compliance worries
Enterprise license is best for large mainframe users
Alternative to solutions from other terminal emulation vendors
Free macro conversion
Reuse existing 3270 integration applications as-is
Industry leader in 3270 terminal emulation migration
Large organizations that utilize IBM mainframes, particularly banks, insurance companies and government agencies, can license literally hundreds, even thousands, of software applications, including 3270 terminal emulation. Tracking and managing product licenses within these environments can be an enormous task.

With a Zephyr PASSPORT Enterprise License Plan (ELP), audits are eliminated, as is the need to record and track terminal emulation product licenses on a per CPU basis. Further, any Zephyr PASSPORT product that offers TN3270E or other legacy communications services, can be incorporated into the master license and widely distributed.

This simple but straightforward approach makes license compliance a thing of the past when it comes to 3270, 5250 or UNIX host access.

3270 is our Business:

Zephyr specializes in 3270 communication, whether from a Windows 7 desktop, XP, Windows 2008 Server, a standard web server or virtual server. If you seek IETF standard TN3270E solutions for Microsoft Windows, Zephyr is the number one supplier to consider.

Founded in 1985, Zephyr is an employee owned company that is debt-free and consistently profitable. The large majority of our revenue recurs annually and the company maintains an almost 100% renewal rate of its products and services. Zephyr maintains offices and distributors in the U.S., UK, Germany, South Africa and throughout Latin America.

Our Client List is Impressive:

Our client portfolio includes large U.S. banks such as Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Comerica, U.S. Bank and Wachovia, while we also support large U.S. insurance companies such as Liberty Mutual, Nationwide Insurance and Progressive.

SoundOfMotion Offers a Free License for 1-degree Precision Bluetooth Bicycle Sensor for 2011

Wheel & Pedal Sensor

CES, Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 7, 2011

SoundOfMotion announces at CES a royalty free one year license to manufacture and distribute the bluetooth wheel pedal bicycle sensor 1-degree precision bluetooth Wheel & Pedal Sensor sensor for bicycles. The royalty free license will be awarded to selected companies who can demonstrate their ability to effectively manufacture and distribute the VeloComputer sensors in six geographic regions: Africa, Americas, Asia, European Union, Eastern Europe and Russia, and Oceania. "Our philosophy is to make VeloComputer technology affordable for the benefit of sport," said Vlad Savchenko, Founder and CEO of SoundOfMotion, demonstrating the VeloComputer bicycle sensor at CES, Bluetooth SIG booth.

The VeloComputer sensor uses classic Bluetooth available in most mobile phones, transmitting performance cycling data to a mobile phone. The sensor is designed for mounting on a rear wheel along a chainstay and combines wheel and pedal strokes sensors in one unit. The sensor accurately measures wheel rotation within 1-degree accuracy and cadence from the pedal motion.

SoundOfMotion's innovative wheel sensing technology is at least 360 times more accurate than traditional cycling computers. The bluetooth cycling computer wheel sensor detects a magnetic field from a magnet attached to the wheel and determines the angle of a rotation with 1-degree accuracy. This 1-degree accuracy reduces latency in speed detection from up to 7 seconds in traditional bicycle computers to less than one second. This low latency allows the sensor to accurately determine a spot speed and acceleration, which is used to calculate torque, propulsion force and power on the wheel. Spot speed, acceleration, cadence, propulsion and applied power are critical for cyclists to improve their training and race technique.

The VeloComputer Bluetooth Sensor is compatible with most Bluetooth mobile devices, supporting serial port protocol - SPP. It uses a rechargeable battery lasting up to 12 hours. The sensor was originally designed for road and trek cyclists for its precision and simplicity but can also be mounted on other types of bicycles.
