Learning from Clouds Past: A Look Back at Magellan

Feb 1, 2012 |

Despite high-hopes, community support, and a lot of good science, the Magellan cloud computing project has ended after a two-year run. Like the famous explorer, the current-day Magellan also navigated uncharted waters and documented the journey for the benefit of future generations. The results of the two-year study are now available in the form of an extensive 169-page report.

Uncovering Results in the Magellan Testbed

Jun 22, 2010 |

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.

DOE Labs to Build Science Clouds

Oct 13, 2009 |

Like many organizations that rely on industrial-strength datacenters, the US Department of Energy (DOE) would like to know if cloud computing can make its life easier. To answer that question, the DOE is launching a $32 million program to study how scientific codes can make use of cloud technology.
