Extending On-Premise HPC to the Cloud
Clouds and Distributed Computing
TimeTuesday, November 13th1:30pm - 2pm
DescriptionFor many years we have used HPC on premises. A large system is shared by multiple users who take advantage of a powerful system. But what happens when HPC in the cloud becomes feasible? What applications can move to the cloud? What advantages and disadvantages does cloud offer? Can the flexibility of cloud be realized for HPC users? How can challenges be overcome? In this talk, Gabriel Broner will cover HPC on premises, HPC in the cloud, and show significant use cases that today are taking advantage of cloud resources. The talk will answer key benefits and challenges of using the cloud for HPC, and will help understand the benefits of a hybrid world, where on premise and cloud will coexist for the foreseeable future.
