Can the cloud really work for HPC applications? For many HPC users thinking of moving their workload to the cloud, the idea of having a user-friendly front end free from back end administration is a strong incentive. At the upcoming ISC Cloud’12 conference, a panel of experts will examine the hurdles of moving HPC to the cloud.
This panel will examine the potential obstacles to cloud adoption, such as security and trust, compliance, outsourcing, performance, virtualization, pricing, payment model, software licenses, choice of service provider or private cloud builder, network bandwidth, and integration of all of these into existing business or research processes.
The event takes place Sept. 24-25 in Mannheim, Germany. Attendees are encouraged to register by Sept. 15 to enjoy the preshow discount.
