HPC Cloud: Can Infrastructure Clouds Provide a Viable Platform for HPC?
SESSION: HPC Cloud: Can Infrastructure Clouds Provide a Viable Platform for HPC?
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Kate Keahey, Franck Cappello, Peter Dinda, Dhabaleswar Panda, Lavanya Ramakrishnan
Clouds are becoming an increasingly popular infrastructure option for science but despite achieving significant milestones their viability for HPC applications is still in question. This BOF is designed to bring together the following communities: (1) the HPC community (2) scientists evaluating HPC workloads on infrastructure clouds, and (3) scientists creating technology that would make HPC clouds possible/efficient. The objective of the BOF is to assess the state of the art in the area as well as to formulate crisp challenges for HPC clouds (as in: "Clouds will become a viable platform for HPC when...").
