Factors to Understand to Maximize Cloud HPC Investments for Your Organization

HPC workloads place considerable demands on compute hardware and IT infrastructures, which is why most organizations have traditionally kept HPC applications on-premises in their local data centers. Several cloud providers now offer specific HPC services and capabilities, but you’ll need to understand and address several factors before running HPC applications in the public cloud instead of locally in your own data center.

XTREME-D IaaS Platform Works to Simplify HPC Cloud Cluster Management

An IaaS platform can help keep HPC cloud cluster users out of the cluster management business. A new white paper from XTREME-D, “Point and Click HPC: The XTREME-Stargate IaaS Platform”, explores how the Stargate platform, that provides a web portal to cluster resources, can increase user efficiency, eliminate cluster administration costs and acts as a “pay-as-you-go” cloud model, simplifying HPC cloud clusters and making them more accessible.

What a TCO Analysis Won’t Tell You: Dig deeper to discover the true cost of your on-premises HPC investments

Most organizations will find that cloud-based HPC solutions will deliver better ROI, even when a basic Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis suggests continued on-premises investments. Furthermore, lower cost has not always been the primary accelerant for innovation when it comes to cloud adoption. Download the new white paper from AWS that examines the hidden factors that should influence decisions about HPC investments.

A Guide to High Performance Computing in the AWS Cloud

A new ebook from Intel and AWS explores how AWS cloud can mitigate some of today’s top HPC challenges and enable engineers and researchers to innovate without constraints. “Most HPC processing is still conducted using on-premises systems. But for those companies unwilling to invest in new hardware to handle peak demands, moving HPC workloads to the cloud may be the answer.”

Intel’s Trish Damkroger on why HPC Matters at ISC 2017

In this video from ISC 2017, Trish Damkroger from Intel describes the company’s vision for HPC as more and more workloads move to the Cloud. She then goes on to preview the full week of Intel’s ISC activities. “Intel is transforming the future of high-performance computing with new tools for innovation and discovery.

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.

Best In Class HPC Cloud Solutions

Cloud computing is growing and replacing many data centers for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. However, the movement towards using a cloud infrastructure is not without challenges. This whitepaper discusses many of the challenges in moving from an on-premise HPC solution to using an HPC Cloud Solution.

IBM Platform Computing Delivers New HPC Cloud Offerings

Clusters that are purchased for specific applications tend not to be flexible as workloads change. What is needed is an infrastructure that can expand or contract as the workload changes. IBM, a recognized leader in High Performance Computing is applying its expertise in both HPC and Cloud computing to bring together the technologies to create the HPC Cloud.

CloudyCluster Moves HPC out of the Data Center and Into the Cloud

CloudyCluster allows you to quickly set up and configure a cluster on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to handle the most demanding HPC and Big Data tasks. You don’t need access to a data center and you don’t have to be an expert in the ins and outs of running computationally intensive workloads in a cloud environment.

HPC in the Cloud – The Overcast has Cleared

In this video from the Dell booth at SC14, Rich Brueckner from insideHPC moderates a panel discussion on Cloud HPC. Panelists include: Muhammad Atif (NCI), Larry Smarr (UC San Diego), Roger Rintala (Intelligent Light), Boyd Wilson (Clemson University & Omnibond).
