Cloud Computing on a Grand Scale: ISI Papers Document High-Performance Feasibility

July 31, 2014

ISI’s high-performance, heterogeneous cloud group – a unit of its Computational Systems & Technology division – had two papers presented at the IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing. Both papers show that high-performance applications can be virtualized with very little overhead, suggesting that users soon may be able to conduct supercomputer-level processing through the cloud, using disparate hardware and software of their own choosing. The IEEE conference was held in Anchorage, Alaska from June 27th to July 2nd, 2014.
