CloudLightning Report Looks at Barriers to HPC in the Cloud

The CloudLightning Project in Europe has published preliminary results from a survey on Barriers to Using HPC in the Cloud. “Trust in cloud computing would appear to be a significant barrier to adopting cloud computing for HPC workloads. Data management concerns dominate the responses.”

Drivers and Barriers to Using HPC in the Cloud

This executive briefing is a preliminary report of a larger study on demand-side barriers and drivers of cloud computing adoption for HPC. A more comprehensive report and analysis will be published later in 2016. From June to August 2016, the CloudLightning project surveyed over 170 HPC discrete end users worldwide in the academic, commercial and government sectors on their HPC use, perceived drivers and barriers to using cloud computing, and uses of cloud computing for HPC.

CloudLightning Project Looks to Self-Managed HPC Services

In this video, Prof. John Morrison from University College Cork describes the CloudLightning project. CloudLightning’s vision is a European economy that thrives and leads the world in the provision and adoption of high performance cloud computing services. Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Program, CloudLightning brings together eight project partners from five countries across Europe.
