Team 196: An UberCloud Experiment for the Living Heart Project

LHPTeam 196 cloud experiment and case study about “Development and Calibration of Cardiac Simulator to Study Drug Toxicity” was collaboratively performed by Stanford University, SIMULIA, and UberCloud, hosted in an UberCloud software container on the Advania Cloud in Iceland, and sponsored generously by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. It is related to the development of a Living Heart Model (LHM) that encompasses advanced electrophysiological modeling. The end goal is to create a bi-ventricular finite element model to be used to study drug-induced arrhythmogenic risk. A computational model that is able to assess the response of new compounds rapidly and inexpensively is of great interest for pharmaceutical companies. Such tool would increase the number of successful drugs that reach the market, while decreasing its cost and time to develop. The case study can be found HERE.

New 451 Research Report: Buoyed by Docker, UberCloud’s HPC application containers are taking off

As the so-called HPC cloud market accelerates, UberCloud aims to make it easy for engineers to run data- and compute-intensive simulations in the cloud.” The 5-page report presents analysis about the history and the current status of UberCloud, its products and services, the business model, and the competition. The report concludes with a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threads.This report is available to 451 subscribers and can be downloaded HERE.

Will the cloud steal my job?

Rosemary 200In this special guest feature of insideHPC, Rosemary Francis from Ellexus describes why the HPC Community has little to fear from the rise of Cloud Computing. As HPC moves to the cloud should I be worried about my job? This is a question we often hear from HPC cluster managers and system administrators. In general the answer is: No. “On the surface, it is a fair question. Moving storage from in-house to an external body could be viewed as taking work out of the company. It is a common misconception about the move from in-house compute systems to the cloud that once the compute moves off-prem there will be nothing to manage.” In fact, the opposite is true. It is common for administrators to manage HPC clusters that are in a different building or even a different country; why do we think it’s going to be any different with the cloud? A cloud infrastructure needs just as much management as in-house infrastructure, perhaps more.

Cloud computing guide for researchers – Real HPC with linear scaling on thousands of cores

ANSYS on AzureIf you need to run lots of computations, either as a large supercomputer simulation, or hundreds of smaller runs for a parameter sweep calculation, cloud computing can really help speed up your research. An HPC Cloud can scale to thousands of compute cores using Message Passing Interface (MPI) due to HPC-optimised, InfiniBand-enabled virtual machines (VMs). The availability of essentially limitless compute capabilities, on-demand, means that you can achieve more, in less time. No need to queue for your job to run, have your job priority lowered because you’ve run too many jobs, or compete with other users on a shared system. You also have full flexibility to install any software you like, without having to wait for someone else to do it for you. You can do real HPC in the public cloud today.

Microsoft joins Cloud28+ as a technology partner for Azure Stack

Microsoft Inspire small2Microsoft has become the latest Technology Partner to join Cloud28+. “Together at Microsoft Inspire this week to meet with customers, partners and influencers, we are cementing a unique opportunity for Cloud28+ members to accelerate their Azure Stack readiness, content and sales enablement. This new community alliance will provide partners with expanded business opportunities and tools while accelerating customer business outcomes”, said Xavier Poisson Gouyou Beauchamps, Vice President, WW Indirect Digital Services at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, in an announcement at the occasion of Microsoft’s Inspire Conference last month in Washington. To fuel partner sales and increased customer choice, HPE and Microsoft will create a joint Azure Stack ISV onboarding program focused on connecting software vendors to HPE and Microsoft solution and service providers.

Uber Experiment 2

When UberCloud started in 2012 with its popular UberCloud HPC Experiment many engineers and scientists were very skeptical and reluctant about high-performance engineering simulations in the cloud. Major roadblocks then were, among others, security, data transfer, software licensing, and losing control in the cloud. Today, after 196 engineering cloud experiments, UberCloud, together with its many software and cloud partners, and with its software container technology, has removed most of the major roadblocks to cloud. Now, we invite all engineers to participate in a completely free cloud experiment, taking their application to the cloud, supported by free cloud licenses, free cloud resources, and free support from our UberCloud Mentors. Please see more UberCloud Experiment details HERE, and send us your request through our cloud experiment HELP form.
