UberCloud is the online community and marketplace where engineers and scientists can discover, try and buy the computing power and expertise on demand they need for their computational and data-intensive tasks. With the limits of their desktop workstations often unable to provide enough computing power and memory, simulations taking too long, and the number of Read more…
Since it launched last July, the UberCloud Experiment has held three rounds of trials that demonstrate the viability of running HPC workloads in the cloud. With the fourth round set to begin soon, attention once again focuses on encouraging the HPC community to invest in the development of cloud HPC resources that have the potential to benefit smaller organizations.
The Compendium is a selection of 25 case studies from the first 60 teams to raise awareness in the digital manufacturing and HPC community about the benefits and best practices of using remote HPC capabilities in HPC centers and in the cloud.

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.
