UberCloud Publishes New Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies

Container harbour 2This is the 3rd annual Compendium of case studies about technical computing in the cloud. These case studies are about cancer genomics, aerodynamics optimizations, coronary artery flow, aircraft wing fluid structure interaction, heat transfer on thermoplastic olefins, microelectronic packaging, wind turbine aerodynamics, frontal car crash, duct elbow optimization, acoustic modelling, and parametric radio frequency heating, to name a few. The goal of the UberCloud Experiment remains the same – to perform engineering experiments in the cloud with real applications in order to understand the roadblocks and how to overcome them. And the efforts are paying off; based on the experience gained over the past several years, UberCloud has now increased the success rate of the individual end-user experiments to almost 100%, as compared to 40% in 2013 and 60% in 2014.

CloudSME Introduces New AppCenter

CloudSME-apps_Screenshot_CFDCloudSME is a European FP7 funded project with the main goal of bringing SMEs closer to cloud computing. CloudSME just announced that its AppCenter. First applications and demonstrators are available for testing! CloudSME  enables manufacturing and engineering companies to use cloud-based High-Performance Computing and Simulation Technologies in CloudSME AppCenter (SaaS), in order to make them more competitive and foster the usage of simulation technologies in Europe. The AppCenter is a web-based service with a goal to provide software simulation products by software vendors for manufacturing and engineering companies. The AppCenter stores information about software products in accessible way and provides usage scenarios. Go to the AppCenter HERE.

Video: Docker for HPC in a Nutshell

Docker1As the newest flavor of Linux Containers, Docker gained a lot of momentum in the last 12 months. With a very convenient and open API-driven architecture Docker is able to help decrease the complexity of operations and increase the productivity of computation. In 2013 Wolfgang Gentzsch and his partner Burak Yenier introduced Docker as a corner-stone of the UberCloud Marketplace to drastically improve and simplify access to HPC resources like workstations, servers, and clouds. In this video from the Docker Workshop at ISC 2015 Andreas Schmidt from Cassini Consulting presents: Docker in a Nutshell. At 20:00 minute mark, he is joined by Jérôme Petazzoni from Docker who elaborates on Containers vs. VMs. Watch the video on insideHPC HERE.

Video: Linux Containers for Engineering & Scientific Applications

UC Container 2In this video from the recent ISC Docker Workshop in Frankfurt, Wolfgang Gentzsch, co-founder and president of the UberCloud, presents an update of UberCloud’s Docker container development for high-performance technical computing. These specific application containers provide packageability, portability, and ease of access and use for all kinds of technical computing applications and tools, for end-users, software vendors, and cloud providers alike. A recent breakthrough demonstrates the efficient use of these containers across multiple servers for parallel computing. Watch the video on insideHPC HERE.

Autodesk Whitepaper: Testing Simulation with Cloud Computing

Team 142 - 1From the introduction:  The UberCloud series of cloud experiments started in July 2012, exploring hands-on cloud computing for engineers and scientists and to learn about cloud hurdles and how to remove them. The whitepaper presents a summary of the Team 142 experiment with end-user Mark Lobo featuring the use of Autodesk CFD in the cloud to virtually test a control valve. The study examines the feasibility and the dramatic time savings available to a casual CFD analyst in employing simulation in the cloud versus desktop workstation alone.  Download the whitepaper from the Autodesk website  HERE.

Christian Kniep about: Docker Disruption, Containers in HPC, and the ISC Coud & Big Data Conference

ChristianKniep-370x290As more enterprises tie their datacenters to Linux containers, interest in market juggernaut Docker grows. Indeed, more than 70 percent currently use or are evaluating Docker, according to the 2015 “State of Containers.” And only 7 percent of those virtualization and cloud professionals surveyed had never heard of it, the StackEngine study found. ISC Events sat down with Christian Kniep, the HPC architect for QNIB Solutions. Kniep is co-organizer and speaker at the conference’s Docker workshop, occurring on Sept. 28 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. They discussed the Docker Container disruption for technical computing and talked about the ISC Cloud & Big Data Conference Sept. 28 – 30 in Frankfurt. Read the interview with Christian in EnterpriseTech HERE.

Announcing availability of Linux RDMA on Microsoft Azure

Tejas KarmarkarIn this blog Tejas Karmarkar from the Microsoft Azure Team announces Linux RDMA on Azure. “We are excited to announce availability of Linux RDMA on Microsoft Azure. With this release, we mark a new milestone in our cloud journey and in our vision to make HPC and Big Compute more accessible and cost-effective for a broader set of users. Linux RDMA makes high speed low latency networking accessible to the engineering and scientific community across the globe, helping them solve complex problems with the applications they use today, Tejas Karmarkar said.
