One important barrier to cloud computing adoption in HPC is data movement and data management,” said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for HPC. “Cloud latency issues can make it challenging to ensure that the right data are in position when applications need to run on the cloud, and that the data are returned in a timely way afterward. Bright addresses this challenge by designing data aware scheduling directly into the company’s cloud bursting capability. This integrated approach could make it easier for mainstream HPC applications to exploit cloud computing.”
