HPC in the Cloud - Clearing the Mist or Lost in the Fog

SESSION: HPC in the Cloud - Clearing the Mist or Lost in the Fog


TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: F. Ronald Bailey

Panelists:F. Ronald Bailey, Rupak Biswas, Jeffery M. Broughton, Geoffrey C. Fox, Deepak Singh, Christian Tanasescu


Cloud Computing is receiving considerable interest in the HPC community for both compute-intensive and data-intensive applications. This mode of computing is purported to offer several advantages over traditional in-house HPC installations. Among these are instant provisioning of computer resources, reduced cost and availability to a large and diverse universe of users that may not have ready access to HPC. While questions such as performance and data security persist it is timely to ask if Cloud Computing is ready to be embraced by the HPC community. Is HPC in the Cloud "ready for prime time" or are there fundamental limits yet to be overcome? The Panel provides expert views on HPC in the Cloud from the perspectives of data-intensive and compute-intensive applications as well as Cloud Computing systems. Discussion will focus on current capabilities and shortcomings of using the cloud and how HPC in the Cloud will likely evolve.
