ABSTRACT: High Performance Computing (HPC) deals with very fast interconnect technologies like InfiniBand (IB) to provide an infrastructure for parallel computing jobs (e.g. MPI). Such compute clusters have typically a special configuration concerning the used operating system and the available applications. Users are limited on these specifications.
At the moment there is no clear concept of how to provide HPC as a Service (HPCaaS) supporting IB with a dynamic configuration in a virtualized cloud computing environment. This poster shows some possible approaches to tackle this issue by using physical deployment respectively I/O Virtualization in future.
