Adaptive Computing, the company that powers many of the world’s largest private/hybrid cloud and technical computing environments with its Moab optimization and scheduling software, today announced its top predictions on the future of computing and big data analytics for 2014 and beyond. Adaptive Computing’s predictions encompass several emerging trends – including the collision of cloud computing, High-Performance Computing (HPC) and big data – that are expected to accelerate the ways enterprises extract insights from their data.
Adaptive Computing solidified its predictions after new findings from a hands-on survey the company recently conducted in Q4 of 2013 at the Supercomputing, HP Discover and the Gartner Data Center conferences in December 2013. More than 400 data center managers, administrators and users participated in the Adaptive Computing survey from a number of vertical markets, including education, oil and gas, financial and insurance services, government, manufacturing, technology software and telecommunications.
“The speed, accuracy and cost at which enterprises can process big data analytics is the new competitive battleground, and we expect the need for results to greatly impact computing in 2014 and beyond,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “In our estimation, big data requires a streamlined approach to a complex data analysis and simulation process that can manage all resources across multiple computing platforms. Because Moab can broker resources over HPC, cloud and big data platforms and optimize data center resources by efficiently scheduling compute jobs, it is uniquely positioned to enable the enterprise to better leverage big data for game-changing, data-driven decisions.”
Adaptive Computing’s 2014 predictions include:
- Enterprises will combine computing resources for a better big data solution. According to Adaptive Computing’s survey, 91 percent of organizations believe some combination of big data, HPC or cloud should occur. As the collision of cloud computing, HPC and big data intensifies, Adaptive Computing predicts that organizations will gain a competitive advantage by investing in software capable of scheduling and optimizing data center resources, which increases utilization by simultaneously orchestrating compute jobs over multiple computing platforms.
- More organizations will turn to HPC as a big data solution. According to Adaptive Computing’s survey, 44 percent of organizations use HPC as a big data solution. As HPC hardware costs continue to decrease, Adaptive Computing forecasts that HPC will become an attainable big data solution for more organizations, including midmarket enterprise companies.
- Big data analysis process will become more automated. The majority of organizations (84 percent) have a manual process to analyze big data, according to Adaptive Computing’s survey. A manual approach is time-consuming and typically results in underutilized, siloed computing environments, which explains why 90 percent of survey respondents would achieve greater satisfaction from a better analysis process or workflow. To process simulations and data analysis more effectively, Adaptive Computing predicts that more organizations will automate the workflow, minimizing costly and error-prone manual work.
- The volume and complexity of big data workflows will begin to impact businesses on a larger scale. Adaptive Computing’s survey found that 72 percent of organizations believe workflow impacts their business. This is due to the complexities that accompany setting up different types of data sets and databases, and the corresponding application needed for each job. Running compute- and data-intensive big data workflows with no automation tends to cause logjams and delay results. Adaptive Computing foresees greater emphasis on automating workflows to eliminate logjams and help extract key information from big data, accelerating insights for the business.
- More efficient big data analytics will increase revenue streams. Research published by Gartner in January 2014 titled “User Survey Analysis: Driving Efficiency and Reducing Cost Is King When It Comes to Decision Making for New Technology Solutions” found that ”mobility, big data and analytics were rated as being of greater importance to an organization’s strategy than social.” “This aligns well with the data received from a recent vendor survey conducted by Gartner in which 2,015 providers expect analytics to account for three times the revenue stream of social.” Adaptive Computing predicts that big data analytics will drive greater revenue by increasing efficiency, reducing internal costs and enabling new business models.

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
