SC21 SuperCompCloud: 5th International Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing and Cloud Technologies
TimeFriday, 19 November 20218:30am - 12pm CST
DescriptionImminent arrival and deployment of exascale systems among multiple hyperscaler cloud providers are expected to enable breakthroughs for various scientific disciplines. Increasingly, these systems utilize cloud technologies, enabling complex and distributed workflows that improve not only scientific productivity, but accessibility of resources to a wide range of communities. Such an integrated and seamlessly orchestrated system for supercomputing and cloud technologies is indispensable for experimental facilities that have been experiencing an unprecedented rate of data growth. While limited-scale HPC services have been available in public cloud environments, petascale and beyond data and computing capabilities are provisioned within HPC data centers using close-to-metal provisioning services to ensure performance, scaling and cost effectiveness. This workshop aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, national laboratories and industry to discuss technologies, use cases and best practices in order to set a vision and direction for leveraging extreme scale computing and on-demand cloud ecosystems.
