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.”

HPC Cloud Drives Innovation & Accelerates Time to Results

HPC applications and workloads have been constrained by limited on-premises infrastructure capacity, high capital expenditures and the constant need for technology refreshes. But there may be an answer: running your HPC workloads in the cloud. “According to the report, hundreds of companies in life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, energy and geo sciences, media and entertainment are solving complex challenges and speeding up time to results using HPC on AWS.”

Iceland’s Verne Global Steps up to run HPC & AI Workloads in the Cloud

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Bob Fletcher from Verne Global discusses why more and more HPC & AI workloads are moving to the company’s datacenters in Iceland. “Today’s computational environments are changing rapidly as more companies are looking to utilize HPC and intensive applications across an increasingly wide variety of industries. At Verne Global we have fully optimized our campus to meet the specific requirements of the international HPC community.”

Why the OS is So Important when Running HPC Applications

This is the fourth entry in an insideHPC series that explores the HPC transition to the cloud, and what your business needs to know about this evolution. This series, compiled in a complete Guide available, covers cloud computing for HPC, why the OS is important when running HPC applications, OpenStack fundamentals and more.

Cloud Computing Continues to Influence HPC

Cloud technologies are influencing HPC just as it is the rest of enterprise IT. This is the second entry in an insideHPC series that explores the HPC transition to the cloud, and what your business needs to know about this evolution. This series, compiled in a complete Guide available, covers cloud computing for HPC, industry examples, IaaS components, OpenStack fundamentals and more.

Industries that Use Cloud Computing for HPC Applications

Various industries have adopted or are in the planning and evaluation phase for using the cloud for HPC applications. Within the realm of technical computing, certain workloads are suited to a cloud-based HPC environment. Workloads could be considered either loosely coupled or tightly coupled. In each of the industries discussed in this article, multiple jobs submitted with different input parameters would be loosely coupled and not require a low-latency, high-speed interconnect, while a job that requires the use of multiple systems working in concert would be tightly coupled and need InfiniBand (IB).

Critical Requirements for HPC in the Cloud

Users in HPC environments have requirements for using a cloud provider that are different than typical enterprise applications. Learn about the key considerations for ensuring maximum performance for running HPC applications in the cloud.
