Virtualization for HPC

SESSION: Virtualization for HPC


TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

Panelists:Josh Simons, Stephan Scott, DK Panda, Bill Bryce, Scott Clark


While virtualization is widely used in the enterprise, it has not to date played a large role in HPC. However, with the rise of cloud computing and its promise of computing on demand, interest in virtualizaton (a key cloud enabler) is increasing. Beyond cloud computing, virtualization offers additional potential benefits for HPC, among them support for multi-tenant environments, checkpoint-restart capabilities, dynamic provisioning, low-overhead job migration, proactive fault tolerance, multi-OS support for heterogeneous HPC facilities, and system and application resilience. This panel session will explore both the promises and challenges of virtualization for HPC through the perspectives of panelists drawn from industry, academia, and the government sector. In addition, the session moderator will contribute a customer perspective, having adopted a virtualized HPC infrastructure within his organization.
