Research Challenges and Funding Opportunities in HPC Clouds for Federal Agencies

SESSION: Research Challenges and Funding Opportunities in HPC Clouds for Federal Agencies

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Bryan Biegel, Almadena Chtchelkanova


High performance computing (HPC) clouds are being explored by several Federal agencies to assess their potential to complement the strengths and application sets of existing HPC environments. These investigations have found that novel challenges must be overcome for the full potential of HPC clouds to be realized. The research challenges in HPC clouds span many disciplines: programming and runtime environments that go beyond MapReduce/Hadoop and Pig, system configuration and management, data movement and storage, resource authorization and management, security, interoperability, resource availability, fault tolerance and resilience, and more. In this BOF, representatives from several federal agencies will give brief presentations on their efforts to understand and address these research challenges, including funding and participation opportunities.
