Today Rescale announced availability of its Europe region simulation and HPC platforms. As an HPC cloud provider, Rescale offers a software platform and hardware infrastructure for companies to perform scientific and engineering simulations.
In this video from IDF 2015, Intel and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) announce the Collaborative Cancer Cloud, a precision medicine analytics platform that allows hospitals and research institutions to securely share patient genomic, imaging, and clinical data for potentially lifesaving discoveries.
The UberCloud has published their 3rd Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies. Like its predecessors in 2013 and 2014, this year’s edition draws from a select group of projects undertaken as part of the UberCloud Experiment. “Our efforts are paying off. Based on the experience gained over the past several years, we have now increased the success rate of the individual experiments to almost 100%, as compared to 40% in 2013 and 60% in 2014.”
“IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF takes control of data transfers to help organizations improve data throughput and lower costs by minimizing wasted compute cycles and conserving disk space. Platform Data Manager automates the transfer of data used by application workloads running on IBM Platform LSF clusters and the cloud, bringing frequently used data closer to compute resources by storing it in a smart, managed cache that can be shared among users and workloads.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Wolfgang Gentzsch from The UberCloud presents: HPC Workloads Using Docker. “The UberCloud Project provides an environment to run HPC workloads on a variety of cloud providers. Wolfgang elaborates on the projects and provides his experience about the roadblocks towards a more flexible cloud-backed HPC future.”
Today the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) announced that its new Chameleon testbed is in full production for researchers across the country. Designed to help investigate and develop the promising future of cloud-based science, the NSF-funded Chameleon is a configurable, large-scale environment for testing and demonstrate new concepts.
