Women in HPC: Diversifying the HPC Community


The Movement toward HPC Inclusivity: Achieving On-Demand Accessibility of High Performance Computing (HPC) through Ephemeral Projects Utilizing the Alces Gridware Project

Authors: Cristin Merritt (Alces Flight Limited)

Abstract: This presentation covers off the adoption of public cloud over the past two years. Using five public case studies, we will discuss how moving into cloud is not an 'all or nothing' option and demonstrate how adding cloud to an HPC solution invites in more opportunities for HPC to grow. But jumping into cloud isn't always an easy! Our presentation will note key differences between hardware and cloud, how those differences play out in the real world, and how open source options are starting to tie these platforms together.
