|Abstract:||The time has come for the HPC community to weigh the merits and risks of leveraging cloud infrastructure to boost and scale HPC environments. The need for scale and compute power is without question, but there has been industry debate about whether cloud environments can handle the needs of HPC applications and under what circumstances. While private cloud computing environments may be suitable for many types of HPC workloads, various workload nuances may require a different approach. Bursting to public clouds may be necessary to complete jobs in a timely manner when internal resources are maxed out.
