Amazing Growth of HPC in the Domain of Cloud Computing

As the name implies, High Performance Computing (HPC) is something that is paving different ways to increase performance of the public and private cloud. It explains the various mechanisms to get the best out of your cloud in minimum resources. You can obtain larger profits by pitching in a little effort, and cash flows with the help of HPC. According to the latest research results, the High Performance Cloud is getting exceedingly popular day by day in IT world and it is expected that it would gain more and more popularity in coming years. The studies suggest that more than $20 billion have invested in this field in previous years and as per IDC, and the adaptability of HPC is increasing at the rate of 7.6% annually.

According to Jason Stowe – CEO of Cycle Computing, one of the main reasons behind the popularity of High Performance Computing is the convenient accessibility of cloud resources as well as their low price range.

The HPC and cloud technology, if utilized in a better and intellectual way can give a real boost to one’s organization in a proficient manner.

When it comes to the performance factor of the HPC, the most notable thing is the creation of 50000-core Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) by Schrodinger – A computational firm. This cluster is capable of analyzing 21 million drug complexes in only three hours’ time. As compared to the internal resources of the firm the computing capacity of the cluster is greater, and that ensures better performance from the firm. The most noticeable thing of this entire project is the low cost of the job.

To cut down the cost in the aspect of HPC jobs to its lowest limit, users make use of the spot instances. It provides the end users with the facility to pay the price as per their choice and needs for the EC2 capacity that has not been used. The practical example for the use of spot instances has taken place in a research university where the gene indexing of 1 million core hours was executed in a week’s time. The job was extremely memory concentrated and needed high use of EC2 instances. That’s why spot instances were used to cut down the cost without affecting the performance of the research job. The entire job was done for only $20000.

Moving to the other side of the story, it is still questionable that whether the HPC jobs are a best fit for all kinds of business models or not? The studies have shown that the HPC cloud is the most optimum and first choice for the jobs that are executed in parallel.

Conclusively, HPC clouds are a particularly good choice for businesses who genuinely need them.
