UberCloud HPC Experiment Readies for Round Three

Mar 5, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpccloud/abstract_globe.jpg” alt=”” width=”94″ height=”84″ />The UberCloud Experiment is issuing an open invitation to members of the HPC, CAE, life sciences, and big data communities to join round three. Teams will be involved in applying the cloud computing services model to compute and data-intensive workloads on remote cluster computing resources. The idea behind the experiment is to explore the end-to-end process of using remote computing resources as a service, and learning to tackle the many roadblocks.
