High performance computer systems have always presented challenges for infrastructure development. Until recently, the only options for HPC deployments were costly, rigid technology silos that had many limitations but could provide the needed level of performance. The idea of Cloud HPC might have seemed impossible just a few years ago. Now, the gap between physical and virtual deployment performance is closing rapidly. Those who need the flexibility of the cloud combined with the speed and performance of traditional dedicated resources can finally have the best of both worlds.
One of the greatest advances in high performance cloud technology is HPCaaS, which stands for High Performance Computing as a Service. This allows the use of clustered servers and storage as resource pools and web interfaces to submit and schedule jobs. Previous high performance cloud solutions usually only allowed for a single application to be used at once. However, increases in bandwidth and efficient enterprise data center construction allows for an incredible amount of flexibility without relying on local hardware silos.
Some of the benefits of high performance infrastructure include enhanced productivity and collaboration. Using web-based tools allows for easier remote access and quicker turn around on the computing tasks. Since these systems are built on reliable and fully tested cloud systems, most functions are fully automated and need minimal support from administrators and technicians. This reduces ownership and operating costs on the local infrastructure.
