The Journey to HPC in the Cloud: Concept to Running Workloads
Video on Demand
The cloud is without doubt a key tool in modern sciences, delivering High Performance Computing (HPC) on demand to facilitate innovation through simulation and to process increasingly large and complex data sets.
But how do organisations make the journey from on-premise or little computing to efficiently using HPC in the cloud?
In this webinar, Altair's Rosemary Francis and Ian Littlewood discuss the path that organisations typically follow to adopting HPC in the cloud, including which questions to answer along the way and how to overcome stumbling blocks that may present themselves.
After attending this webinar, attendees will be equipped to start the journey to HPC in the cloud with knowledge of what to expect and how to pragmatically adopt this technology.
Why HPC in the Cloud?
Compute Resource Allocation Becomes a Business Decision
Business decisions guided by clear need and available budget determine when cloud compute resources are allocated. The process is transparent to end-users who run workload when necessary.
Reduction in Data Centre Costs
Data centre capital investment is contained to assets that are used efficiently on regular basis. Additional compute requirements are covered by operating expenditure to procure specialized cloud compute cycles when they're needed.
Appropriate Compute Hardware
Different workloads require different types of compute infrastructure to execute most efficiently. Automated cloud-bursting policy can assign the most appropriate, cutting edge hardware to your workloads.
