The Future of HPC in the Cloud

The objectives of this document are:

* To determine the key determinants of cloud computing adoption decisions for HPC

* Determine the present and future critical issues and problems facing HPC and the adoption of HPC in the Cloud from a stakeholder perspective.

Impact of Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities on HPC

“Performance is important in high performance computing. A performance impact on HPC use can be more than a simple annoyance. Because of the high investment cost and energy usage of HPC systems, a performance impact can have a signi cant effect on price per compute job. As we have discussed in the previous sections, the “page table isolation” workarounds have an overhead on entering and leaving the kernel. Luck happens that in HPC, computers spend most of their time in user space, doing computations. Low-latency networks such as In niband allow HPC systems to perform network communication without involving the kernel. Therefore during HPC computations, the Linux kernel might not be actively involved and the CPUs are running at full power.”

Nine Critical Features for Object Stores

Object stores represent a simpler, more scalable solution and one that is easily accessed over standard web-based protocols. To learn more about Object Stores download this guide.

Parallel File System Delivers Better Strategies, Faster

A parallel file system offers several advantages over a single direct attached file system. By using fast, scalable, external disk systems with massively parallel access to data, researchers can perform analysis against much larger datasets than they can by batching large datasets through memory.

Distributed FPGAs Solution for High-Performance Computing in the Cloud

FPGAs are firmly represented in data centers: they perform various computational and acceleration tasks that will only increase in the complexity along with the advancement of technology. Similarly, the number of FPGAs in data centers is growing on a daily basis and will continue to do so, especially considering recent developments introduced by big players, […]

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.
