Best Practices for Building, Deploying & Managing HPC Clusters

In today’s markets, a successful HPC cluster can be a formidable competitive advantage. And many are turning to these tools to stay competitive in the HPC market. That said, these systems are inherently very complex, and have to be built, deployed and managed properly to realize their full potential. A new report from Bright Computing explore best practices for HPC clusters. 

Turbocharge your HPC Hybrid Cloud with Policy-based Automation

While there are many advantages to running in the cloud, the issues can be complex. Users need to figure out how to securely extend on-premise clusters, devise solutions for data handling and constantly keep an eye on costs. Univa’s Robert Lalonde, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud, explores how to turbocharge your HPC hybrid cloud with tools like policy-based automation, and how closing the loop between workload scheduling and cloud-automation can drive higher performance and dramatic cost efficiencies.

Five Essential Strategies for Successful HPC Clusters

Successful HPC clusters are powerful assets for an organization. However, these systems are complex and must be built and managed properly to realize their potential. If not done properly, your ability to meet implementation deadlines, quickly identify and resolve problems, perform updates and maintenance, accommodate new application requirements and adopt strategic new technologies will be jeopardized.

Choosing the Right Type of Cloud for HPC Lets Scientists Focus on Science

Naoki Shibata from XTREME-D writes that choosing the right type of cloud computing is key to increasing efficiency. “One challenge that HPC, DA, and DL end users face is to keep focused on their science and engineering and not get bogged down with system administration and platform details when ensuring that they have the clusters they need for their work. It has often been said that if scalable cluster computing can become more turnkey and user-friendly (and less costly), then the market will expand to many new areas.”

Imagine HPC with the Power of the Cloud

Running HPC in the cloud enables organizations to select and deploy an optimal set of services for their unique applications, and to pay only for what they use. This sponsored post from AWS explores how the cloud HPC market is growing at a significant rate and accelerating HPC innovation. “With HPC in the cloud, computational scientists and commercial HPC users can gain rapid access to resources they need without a burdensome procurement process.”

Common Myths Stalling Organizations From Cloud Adoption

Cloud adoption is accelerating at the blink of an eye, easing the burden of managing data-rich workloads for enterprises big and small. Yet, common myths and misconceptions about the hybrid cloud are delaying enterprises from reaping the benefits. “In this article, we will debunk five of the top most commonly believed myths that keep companies from strengthening their infrastructure with a hybrid approach.”

Moving Toward the Cloud & Seamless HPC

This is the fifth and final entry in an insideHPC series that explores the HPC transition to the cloud and how this move can help create seamless HPC. This series, compiled in a complete Guide, covers cloud computing for HPC, why the OS is important, OpenStack fundamentals and more.

Unlike Oil and Water, Legacy and Cloud Mix Well

Despite the cloud hype, legacy HPC apps are alive and well. While it may seem like they can’t mix, the process of bursting these applications to the cloud is bringing these staples to cloud table. Avoiding rewrites can efficiently bring immediate HPC cloud benefits to organizations big and small. “Many technologies and solutions now available allow for the functional and highly efficient coordination and connection between legacy applications and the well-known advantages of the cloud.”

Considerations for Applications to Transition to a Cloud
