Keynote: HPC & Simulation in the Cloud – How Academia & Industry Can Benefit

Michael M. Resch, HLRS Stuttgart

Cloud concepts have made services available in a variety of fields. High Performance Computing (HPC) is traditionally a field inwhich new concepts are developed and tested first. This talk will give an overview of how this idea of a cloud was turned into a concept from which both academic and industrial users can benefit. Description of a number of projects as well as two public private partnerships will highlight the potential as well as the limitations of cloud concepts in an HPC environment.
