The projects' themes are:
Projects in all three themes are underway now.
"The ultimate goal of netcentric operations is to ensure that the right people get the right information at the right time," explains Rick Hayes-Roth, a W2COG founding member. "Development of this capability will be a significant step in improving the effectiveness of the coalition forces' in their counter-terrorism, peacekeeping and disaster recovery operations."
"The success of W2COG efforts in military support for humanitarian relief efforts has raised the public awareness of the critical role of the armed forces in providing not only infrastructure support, but fundamental technologies in such areas as distance learning to populations under distress," said Aaron Budgor, managing director of the W2COG Institute. "Our role in VIRT-VOTS is now providing distance learning tutoring support to students in K-12 displaced from their schools in the Gulf States of Louisiana and Mississippi."
"W2COG understands the sense of urgency surrounding the need for innovations such as VIRT," explained Geoffrey Brown, senior director of Emerging and Advanced Technologies at Oracle Corp. and a W2COG board member. "Oracle is committed to significantly advancing technology innovation. VIRT and the supporting W2COG eco-system are examples of what leveraged collaboration can deliver."
"In implementing these projects, W2COG is fulfilling its mission to create solutions-based technologies for real needs," said Chris Gunderson, director of the DoD research initiative that spawned W2COG. "When the projects are completed, we will be better able to more efficiently communicate with our active military forces, increasing safety and the probability of mission success."
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience.
