Cluster 3.0 in Practice: Dynamic Provisioning with MOAB and XCAT at RMSC

This technical presentation will focus on the promises and perils of building a dynamic infrastructure for a true HPC cloud environment. As a case study, the Rocky Mountain Supercomputing Centers, Inc. (RMSC) offers a Supercomputing Platforms as a Service (SPaaS) model for Cloud Computing. The challenge facing RMSC is to provide a range of standard software packages and HPC services to their clients in a robust and automated fashion. These services require a flexible infrastructure as clients have a wide range of needs.

The challenge facing RMSC is to provide a range of standard software packages and HPC services to their clients in a robust and automated fashion. These services require a flexible infrastructure as clients have a wide range of needs.

This webinar will explain how these issues were addressed using a Cluster 3.0 approach that includes IBM xCAT, Adaptive Computing MOAB suite ,and NICE srl EnginFrame (among others). There will be a discussion of implementation issues and exciting new client capabilities that were not possible using previous cluster methods.

Following the presentation, this event will include a panel Q&A with Trevor Harmon, Director of Services, Adaptive Computing and Earl Dodd, Deep Computing Business Development, IBM.
