The UberCloud Experiment

“The UberCloud Experiment is a unique model to break the barrier to High Performance Computing in the cloud. It pools all resources required for us to get a hand on HPC in the cloud to solve our real-world problem. The experiment provides us with valuable information for our HPC decision-making.” . . . . . . . . Frank Ding, PhD, Simulation & Computing Manager, Simpson Strong-Tie

“Today, a single engineer has tremendous computing power available. I created a virtual prototype of the valve and ran mechanical simulations in my computer workstation. Collaborating with Autodesk and the UberCloud Experiment, I ran more than 200 flow simulations in the cloud to ensure the design met performance goals. This development path did not exist five years ago.” . . . . . . . . Mark A. Lobo, P.E. – Principal, Lobo Engineering PLC.

“Our successful partnership with UberCloud has allowed us to perform virtual drug testing using realistic human heart models. For us, UberCloud’s high-performance cloud computing environment and the close collaboration with HPE, Dassault, and Advania, were critical to speed-up our simulations, which help us to identify the arrhythmic risk of existing and new drugs in the benefit of human health.”                    Prof. Ellen Kuhl, Head of Living Matter Laboratory at Stanford University

“Until recently it was my firm belief that cloud computing for engineering applications is one of the next big challenges we have to solve, But when we came across UberCloud’s new application container technology and containerized all our CFD software packages we were surprised about the ease of use and access to any computing system on demand.”          Professor Charles Hirsch, President and founder of NUMECA International, world-renowned expert on Computational Fluid Dynamics

UberCloud Experiment helps you build and test your HPC Cloud strategy

UberCloud is well-known for the UberCloud Experiment, the free, community driven effort that explores the end-to-end processes of accessing and using remote computing resources in High Performance Computing (HPC) centers and tech computing clouds, on demand. Participants of the experiment get hands on experience on using remote computing resources for their own projects; in the process learning how to cope with the challenges and resolving many of the common roadblocks. The project teams working on the end-users applications discuss their experience, the hurdles they ran into, their lessons learned, and the best practices, on the UberCloud community web site.

The UberCloud Experiment was started in July 2012, and since then has grown to over 5000 organizations and individuals from more than 70 countries. More than 220 cloud experiment teams have been formed since then and many of these teams are covered on the UberCloud community web site. UberCloud Experiment offers free trials for up to 1,000 CPU core hours. Many teams then continue with a more realistic Proof of Concept.

UberCloud is deeply grateful for the generous support of our Premium Sponsors Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel, and our Primary Media Sponsors HPCwire and Digital Engineering. Without their continuous sponsorship these cloud experiments and the related case studies and publications would not have been possible. Thank You!
