The Cloud-Enabled HPC Challenge
The HPC landscape has changed dramatically over the past two decades. The underlying technology is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. In addition, the adoption of cloud computing has created a new expectation for workload portability and user experience both in the cloud and in on-premises resources. Delivering that experience can improve utilization and efficiency. If you can adapt, you can enhance your capabilities and improve your competitiveness.
Cloud-native technologies like containerization and virtualization are quickly becoming the preferred way to build new software experiences and modernize existing workloads, and workflows. These technologies deliver an improved, unified experience at scale from private clouds to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud.
Designing the right cloud-enabled, on-premises HPC platform for your workloads is a complex task. Ensuring that the compute, storage, and networking subsystems are well designed individually and function in a balanced manner together is critical. With each new technological advance comes more choices. A poor design choice at any point in the process can negatively impact performance and reliability and can significantly reduce the value of your HPC investment.
Mitigating these risks, building optimal infrastructures, and planning for the future of your HPC environment is not simple. You need a cloud-enabled HPC infrastructure that is optimized for your unique workloads and portability needs and is engineered by a partner who knows HPC and who knows the cloud. To manage and customize it all, you need cloud-native tools that are created specifically for administrators by engineers who manage HPC from on-premises to the cloud.
