Room:   Hall B

Chair(s):   Wolfgang Gentzsch, Executive HPC Consultant
Abstract:   With the rise of Cloud Computing in general, we also see a growing interest to outsource HPC. If done right, HPC in the Cloud can help to increase business and research flexibility, reduce management overhead, and extend the existing, limited HPC infrastructures. Clouds reduce the barrier for service providers to offer HPC services with minimum entry costs and infrastructure requirements. Clouds allow service providers and users to experiment with novel services and to reduce the risk of wasting resources.

This session on “Cloud Computing & HPC Requirements” will highlight three interesting HPC Cloud use cases: the cloud provider view from Amazon (Concepts, Patterns & Practices), the big science view from CERN (Preparatory Steps for LHC Computing), and the critical view from the Magellan project (Experiments Using Magellan project, a Science Cloud Testbed). Real-life experiences with cloud computing will cumulate in cloud lessons learned and recommendations for the session participants.
