SAN JOSE, Calif., June 10 — Bright Computing today announced that Matthijs van Leeuwen will present the Bright Cluster Manager solution for cloud bursting, as part of the Cluster and Workflow Management track at HP-CAST in Hamburg, Germany. HP-CAST is a premier consortium for advanced scientific computing organized by Hewlett-Packard.
Bright Computing, a registered AWS ISC Solution Provider, has built a comprehensive yet intuitive capability to extend HPC clusters into Amazon EC2. With a few mouse clicks, Bright Cluster Manager provisions, schedules, monitors and manages these EC2 resources as part of the local cluster. Every on-site HPC cluster running Bright is automatically cloud-ready, at no additional cost and without the need for expertise in cloud computing.
Alternatively, Bright users can create an entirely new cluster in Amazon EC2, and manage these resources using Bright.
Dr. van Leeuwen will also present the use of Bright's data aware scheduling capability for the cloud. Bright automatically makes the data required for compute jobs accessible in the cloud before the start of computation, and then moves the results back to the user upon completion. This capability eliminates the need to manually initiate and then monitor data movement, saving both time and cloud computing costs.
The Hewlett-Packard Consortium for Advanced Scientific and Technical (HP-CAST) computing users group works to increase the capabilities of HP solutions for large-scale, scientific and technical computing. HP-CAST provides guidance to HP on the essential development and support issues for such systems. No membership is required to attend HP-CAST conferences. http://bit.ly/BrightHPCAST

The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
