cloud HPC

cloud HPC provides clustered cloud server and solutions for high performance computing.

What is cloud HPC(High Performance Computing)?

1. Researchers & Engineers can solve complexed sciences, analysis and simulation, which was needed high bandwidth, instant networking and high-volumed computing power.

2. Generally speaking, users had to purchase expensive HW or wait long time to use shared cluster resources. But these days, users can process his HPC workload easily using cloudHPC infra resources and just pay as he used.

HPC service is to do high-volumed computation and data storing with many a clustered VM.
Users report Job to head node for problem solving and head node allocates Job to computing nodes in accordanc with priority and usage volume.
The computing output can be reported by head node. For this, computing node help to control work process by GUI.

- Head node: HPC control computer to admin multiple computing node
- Computing node: Computing node to do high volumed computing work, controlled by Head node
- PBS Professional: SW solution to admin HPC work load
- Compute manager: Web service to execute command and file transfer by simple web browser

Solution Introduction

PBS Professional짰 was developed in 1990 by NASA Ames Reaearch Institute and has been proven its stability. And now, it is used in global 500 companies to do high-volume HPC computing. PBS Professional is to manage computing resources(CPU memory,disk etc.) and to guide HPC resources allocation plan for work analysis Altair Compute Manager is web bowser-based HPC interface. It is possible to do simple work using HPC and do monitoring status and check its output by chart and animation. Most of solving work can be done by compute manager and no need to worry about big simulation work.

Physical server vs cloud HPC

Index Physical server-based computing cloud HPC
Scalability Comparison with physical server computing
Needed to do HW addition or replacement for volume expansion
Possible to expand HPC cluster easily by computing node addition
Speediness Takes time to do Delivery, Installation
Takes time to do Hardware Maintenance
Possibel to do integrated installation od OS and HPC scheduler
Possible to do automatic installation of NFS, NIS, SSH etc for Clustering
Stability Imposible to provide service in case of Hardware failure
Needed to have System Redundancy for failure
Possible to convert into residual Cloud resources and fast troubleshooting
No need to have System Redundancy
Cost Rduction Necessary to have HW budget including residual resources
Need to pay network/floor/electricity eyc.(operation cost)
Pay as you use
No need to do operation cost

Effects expected

1. Enhanced efficiencies
- Users can do his own work without any knowledge about HPC(Provide web-base UI)
- Reduction of repetitive work causing minimized failure of HPC work
- HPC working time minimization by optimal working environment
- cooperation & cowork by profile sharing

2. Maximization of HPC resources usage
- Possible to work on weekend or holiaday, using by queing & reservation
- Minimization of work failure through replication, Job correction and auto identification of troubled system
- ROI and systematic purchasing cost by resources record analysis
