Cloud and Distributed Computing
Parallel Programming Languages and Models
Parallel Programming Systems
TimeMonday, 15 November 20219:05am - 10am CST
DescriptionThe continuous increase in complexity and scale of high-end systems, together with the evolving diversity of processor options, are forcing computational scientists to face system characteristics that can significantly impact the performance and scalability of applications. HPC users need a system infrastructure that can adapt to their workload needs, rather than having to constantly redesign their applications to adapt to new systems. In this talk, I will discuss the current trends in computer architecture and the implications in the development of HPC applications and programming and middleware environments. I will present the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), which provides availability, resiliency, and performance at scale, so HPC users can easily choose the best option for their workloads, and will discuss hybrid on-prem/cloud options, which facilitate workload migration from on-premise to the cloud. I will finish the presentation with a discussion of some of the challenges and open research problems that still need to be addressed in this area.
