We often write about some of the interesting cloud computing research projects taking place via Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and NERSC, so when we had a chance to record Kathy Yelick,, NERSC Director at SC10, we took the opportunity to help put a face to the name and lend insight into what’s happening at one of the more prominent national centers in cloud and HPC research.
Last week leading figures from the HPC and cloud realm gathered in Frankfurt, Germany, for the ISC Cloud Conference, which was organized by the same team that puts together the long-running International Supercomputing Conference each year. The conference drew leading speakers from industry and academia to discuss the challenges, benefits and future of cloud for high-performance computing.
Since its launch in 2009, the Magellan cloud computing testbed has produced some results of interest to the scientific computing community in its effort to evalue the cost-effectiveness and energy-efficiency, not to mention performance for clouds in scientific applications. Kathy Yelick, NERSC Director discusses some key findings.
