RightScale Webinar: This webinar will introduce Grid Engine On Demand, a new solution by Univa and RightScale that lets you stand up HPC clusters in minutes. This on-demand, pay-as-you-go solution allows you to create Grid Engine clusters that are perfectly suited for serial HPC workloads.

Grid Engine is used by thousands of companies worldwide to build large compute cluster infrastructures for processing massive volumes of workload. Highly scalable and reliable, Grid Engine enables companies to increase quality, reduce time to market, and simplify the computing environment.

Key Highlights and Demo:
- How to launch an HPC cluster in under 10 minutes using RightScale
- How to optimize the utilization of your cloud resources for HPC workloads
- Best practices for migrating your data and applications to the Cloud

Find out how your organization can leverage the power of Grid Engine computing with Univa and RightScale's Grid Engine On Demand.

  • 15. Why Cloud for HPC?
    Initial Idea
    Successful Solution
    Traditional Barriers
    • Slow server procurement & provisioning
    • 16. Limited resources
    • 17. Competition over resources
    • 18. Large upfront investments
  • Why Cloud for HPC?
    Initial Idea
    Successful Solution
    With Cloud Computing
    • Provision servers instantly
    • 19. Theoretically unlimited resources
    • 20. Pay as you go pricing
    • 21. No upfront infrastructure costs
  • One Click HPC
    Deploy a Grid Engine Cluster in under 10 minutes
    Full server provisioning automation & orchestration
    Pay as you go pricing
    Ideal for serial-based HPC workloads
    Automatically provision your Queue Master & Execution Hosts
  • 22. Demonstration
  • 23. Best Practices for Data
    Many possible solutions exist. Consider…
    Storing data in Amazon’s S3 service and accessing via S3FS
    Ingesting data into S3 then distributing to mounted EBS volumes
    Utilize ‘rsync’ or ‘scp’ to move files from your site into EBS volumes
    Utilizing Amazon’s public datasets
    Launch your Grid Engine geographically close to your data
    This solution is supported in AWS regions worldwide
    Moving data into Amazon’s cloud is free!
  • 24. Best Practices for Applications
    Utilize your current Grid Engine application deployment strategy
    Utilize RightScale’sServerTemplates
    Upload your applications to your Queue Master node, and distribute them to your Execution Hosts
    Install the application on a NFS mounted filesystem, then mount that filesystem on all of the compute nodes in the cluster
  • 25. HPC in the Cloud - Security
    AWS meets several levels of security compliance
    FISMA Low
    PCI DSS Level 1
    ISO 27001
    SAS70 type II
    Amazon’s Security Center:
    Additional user & account management via RightScale
    Infrastructure & security auditing available via RightScale
  • 26. Solution Pricing
    • Hourly and monthly pricing plans available
    • 27. Hourly pricing starts at $0.02 / node / hour (for Univa GE On Demand)
    • 28. Monthly plans available for steady-state usage
    • 29. Inbound data transfer is free! on Amazon Web Services
    Univa Grid Engine On Demand
    RightScale Subscription
    Underlying Infrastructure Costs
  • 30. Agility Example: Cost-neutral Equation
    Total processing time: 500 hours
    Output data
    2 server cloud
    Total processing time: 1 hour
    Output data
    1000 server cloud
    This graphic compares running the same 10,000 jobs on 2 servers versus 1000 servers. The cost is the same for either scenario in RightScale using AWS, but the difference in elapsed time is 499 hours.
    (assuming each server can process 10 jobs/hour)
