    • What is Grid Engine?
      Industry Leading Distributed Resource Management (DRM)
      Used in over 10,000 data center deployments
      Job scheduling for distributed clusters
      Complete high-priority jobs on time while maintaining maximum cluster utilization
      Resource & software license monitoring & tracking
    • Grid Engine Use Cases by Industry
      Financial Services
      EDA & Semiconductor
      Digital Media
      Life Sciences
      CAD (design)
    • Why Cloud for HPC?
      Initial Idea
      Successful Solution
      Traditional Barriers
      • Slow server procurement & provisioning
      • Limited resources
      • Competition over resources
      • Large upfront investments
    • Why Cloud for HPC?
      Initial Idea
      Successful Solution
      With Cloud Computing
      • Provision servers instantly
      • Theoretically unlimited resources
      • Pay as you go pricing
      • 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
    • Demonstration
    • 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!
    • 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
    • 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: http://aws.amazon.com/security/
      Additional user & account management via RightScale
      Infrastructure & security auditing available via RightScale
    • Solution Pricing
      • Hourly and monthly pricing plans available
      • Hourly pricing starts at $0.02 / node / hour (for Univa GE On Demand)
      • Monthly plans available for steady-state usage
      • Inbound data transfer is free! on Amazon Web Services
      Univa Grid Engine On Demand
      RightScale Subscription
      Underlying Infrastructure Costs
    • 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)
