HPC Cloud and Big Data Analytics - Transforming High Performance Technical Computing
SESSION: HPC in the Cloud II
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 1:30PM - 2:00PM
Presenter(s):Chris Porter, Scott Campbell
Big Data and Cloud Computing have transitioned from being buzz words to transforming how we think about high-performance technical computing. Traditional technical computing implementations are deployed through purpose-built cluster and grid resources, resulting in monolithic silos, which are often either not fully utilized or overloaded. However, with the rise of Cloud Computing and new techniques for managing Big Data Analytics workloads, this scenario is changing. This presentation explores how Cloud and Workload Management solutions provide a mechanism to transform isolated technical computing resources into a shared resource pool for both compute- and data-intensive applications. On-demand access to resources that can be rapidly provisioned based on workload requirements provides research flexibility, easy access to resources, reduced management overhead, and optimal infrastructure utilization.
