M14: High Performance Cloud Computing

SESSION: M14: High Performance Cloud Computing

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Matt Wood


High performance computing has arrived in the cloud. This tutorial describes the technologies, architectures and management tools of working with high performance compute resources in the cloud. Using real world examples, this tutorial takes a guided tour through the provisioning and orchestration of large scale, distributed systems, to executing tightly coupled, parallel tasks on high specification hardware and GPUs. We╩╝ll also discuss how to manage, secure and integrate elastic resources with existing HPC infrastructure. The tutorial will comprise a short introduction, and then two hands-on tutorial workshop sessions focusing on building, managing and maintaining high performance compute infrastructure in the cloud. A number of example exercises will be available for beginner, intermediate and advanced users. Tutorial materials are available here: All attendees will receive free service credit to cover the costs of running all examples in this tutorial. To get started, attendees should arrive with a free Amazon Web Services account, available from:
