Five Reasons to Run Your HPC Applications in The Cloud

In this new infographic from Intel, you’ll see examples of successful, real-world HPC deployments on virtually unlimited, Intel® Xeon® technology-powered AWS compute instances that provide scalability and agility not attainable on-premises. Download the new report to discover how to innovate without limits, reduce costs, and get your results to market faster by moving your HPC workloads to AWS.

SkyScale: GPU Cloud Computing with a Difference

In this guest post, Tim Miller, president of SkyScale, covers how GPU cloud computing is on the fast track to crossing the chasm to widespread adoption for HPC applications. “Two good examples of very different markets adopting GPU computing and where cloud usage makes sense are artificial intelligence and high quality rendering.”

Performance in the Datacenter

Many modern applications are being developed with so called run-time languages, which are compiled at execution time. The performance of these applications in cloud data centers is important for anyone considering moving their applications and workloads to the cloud.

Thinking about Colocation? Do These 7 Things First

While the merits of in-house vs. cloud vs. colo have been vigorously debated — and will likely continue for some time — a new report is aimed at those already sold on the colo concept. Download the white paper from Instor for considerations, tips and potential landmines to watch out for those looking to utilize colocation in 2018.  

Cloud Guide for HPC Computing

This white paper presents an evolutionary approach to cloud computing within a high-performance computing (HPC) context. The paper addresses the seamless and incremental process of moving from private/internal to public/external clouds, the realistic use cases, and the qualities needed in a vendor to get you there. This paper also compares several public cloud offerings and profiles a vendor who is enabling a range of cloud solutions for leading Fortune 500 companies.

Amazon EC2 Computing Cloud and High-Performance Computing

2013 has been an exciting year for the field of Statistics and Big Data, with the release of the new R version 3.0.0. We discuss a few topics in this area, providing toy examples and supporting code for configuring and using Amazon’s EC2 Computing Cloud. There are other ways to get the job done, of course. But we found it helpful to build the infrastructure on Amazon from scratch, and hope others might find it useful, too.

Cloud Solutions for HPC Efficiency

This white paper reviews common HPC-environment challenges and outlines solutions that can help IT professionals deliver best-in-class HPC cloud solutions—without undue stress and organizational chaos.

Cloud Computing Guide

IT organizations are facing increasing pressure to deliver critical services to their users while their budgets are either reduced or maintained at current levels. New technologies have the potential to deliver industry-changing information to users who need data in real time, but only if the IT infrastructure is designed and implemented to do so. While computing power continues to decline in cost, the management of large data centers, together with the associated costs of running these data centers, increases. The server administration over the life of the computer asset will consume about 75 percent of the total cost.

Cloud Adoption in Your Community

In conference rooms worldwide, enterprise IT departments are evaluating entry into ‘the cloud’. Armed with media reports and marketing materials, they are considering questions like, “Is the cloud appropriate for critical workloads? Will the cloud really save time and money? Does the cloud pose a security risk?”
There’s only one problem with such due diligence: there’s no such thing as ‘the cloud’. Instead, there are multiple clouds, with different configurations, offered by different providers and representing different degrees of benefit and risk.
