The UberCloud HPC Experiment started in mid-2012 with the aim of exploring the end-to-end process employed by digital manufacturing engineers to access and use remote computing resources in HPC centers and in the cloud. Since then the UberCloud HPC Experiment has achieved the volunteer participation of 500 organizations and individuals from 48 countries. Over 80 teams have been involved so far. Each team consists of an industry end-user and a software provider. The organizers match them with a well-suited resource provider and an HPC expert. Together, the team members work on the end-user’s application with the mission of:
- Defining the requirements
- Implementing the application on the remote HPC system
- Running and monitoring the job
- Getting the results back to the end-user
- And finally writing the case studies appearing here
This Compendium of 25 case studies is selected from the first 60 teams to raise awareness in the digital manufacturing community about the benefits and best practices of using remote HPC capabilities. This illuminating document is an invaluable resource for engineers, managers and executives who believe in the strategic importance of applying advanced technologies to help drive their organization’s productivity to perceptible new levels.
