14:00-14:15: OPENING - Avner & Guy
14:15-14:50: PPF, JAVA, OPEN-SOURCE AND GRID: BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL GRID
Speaker: Laurent Cohen, ILOG, Inc. and JPPF founder
Traditional Grid architectures rely on a concept of job submission that comes with a set of constraints regarding the nature of the compute nodes, the ease of deployment of the jobs, and the effort required to use the Grid, which could otherwise be utilized to work on the problems to solve. JPPF offers an alternative, enabling a true heterogeneous nature of the Grid components, an ease of use that permits engineers, developers and scientists to focus on their domain rather than on the grid infrastructure, while retaining the benefits of the Grid technology to solve heavy and complex computational problems.We will present how the design and architectural choices in JPPF, in terms of programming language, installation, administration, dynamic configuration, updates automation, application code deployment and security policy automation, bring outstanding benefits in the areas of the cost of adoption, level of effort at the operational and organizational levels, as well as the resulting ease of use for the end-users.
15:00-15:35: INTERACTIVE, USER FRIENDLY, PARALLEL COMPUTING ON CLUSTERS
Speaker: Yoel Jacobsen/E&M CTO
Productivity boost brought by Star-P to the teams of MATLAB-skilled domain experts is matched by the economic benefits of getting the most out of the computing power of next generation servers and clusters. Star-P enables interactive workflow for large-scale scientific and engineering computing, eliminating the need for intermediate steps of reprogramming the code in C, Fortran, and MPI, and dramatically shortening the time to insight.
