Hybrid and Public Cloud Optimized for Technical and High Performance Computing

SESSION: Effective Application of HPC

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 4:00PM - 4:30PM

SESSION CHAIR: Richard Evans

Presenter(s):Louise Westoby, Chris Porter



While cloud computing presents many opportunities for organizations to improve efficiency and realize bottom-line business advantages, there are also barriers to adopting public cloud for HPC– such as security, licensing, pricing and performance. The need for scale and compute power is without question, but there is debate about whether cloud infrastructure providers can handle the needs of compute-intensive applications, and under what circumstances. This session will review what to look for when evaluating which infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider is best for your needs. We will introduce you to the IBM® Platform Computing™ Cloud Service running on SoftLayer®, which delivers high performance application-ready clusters in the cloud for organizations that need to quickly and economically add computing and storage capacity. You can deploy analytics and technical computing workloads on hybrid and secure stand-alone clusters in the cloud, leveraging dedicated, bare metal infrastructure and InfiniBand for optimal performance and security.
