cloudSME The European hpc cloud platform for simulation

  1. 1. The European HPC cloud platform For the deployment, management and on-demand usage of simulation software. Tamas Kiss – Chair of Advisory Board Andreas Ocklenburg - CEO
  2. 2. cloudSME Project • Funded by the European Commission FP7 programme – Factories of the Future initiative • Duration time: July 2013 – March 2016 • EUR 4.5 million overall funding • Coordinated by the University of Westminster • 16 initial project partners – including 12 SMEs • 13 new partners (12 SMEs) joined in January 2015 as result of an Open Call • Focus: foster the uptake of simulation software especially among small and medium-sized enterprises by offering software as a Service (SaaS) on a scalable platform. • Founded as a company in January 2016 2
  3. 3. cloudSME commercial offerings • simulation applications that can be published and directly executed from the CloudSME App Center based on the software as a service (SaaS) model. • awarded platform technology with powerful capabilities that smoothly enables computationally intensive Fluid Dynamics Simulations (MPI support). • fast-track deployment & a great variety of cloud integration methods (various APIs, PaaS, Docker). • the provision of access to heterogeneous commercial and private cloud resources (IaaS)as well as European supercomputing centres (i.e. German HLRS, Italian CINECA or French Romeo Center) • HPC as a service (HPCaaS). • Security: Data operation in European data centres and industrial security level. Operation mode “Europe only” possible. • Advanced and proven technology to model workflow solutions. • The provision of expert consulting services at each step of software integration. 3
  4. 4. cloudSME Stakeholders 4 • Simulation end-users from manufacturing and engineering, mainly. • ISVs/VARS consultancies to implement their software in the cloudSME App Center or use cloud integration via API. • Infrastructure and Service providers (commercial & academic providers & supercomputing centres)
  5. 5. Main technological components • cloudSME App Center, including – a public landing page – a web shop, and – a set of commercial services that are available via APIs and can be integrated into marketplaces or vendor products. • CloudBroker Platform – enables the deployment and execution of compute-intensive applications on different clouds – widely automates user, software, resource, job, and invoice management. – has been ranked as No. 1 regarding its innovation potential by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in a latest study comparing 517 innovations in information and communication technology (ICT) from 279 FP7 and H2020 EU projects regarding their innovation readiness, innovation management and market potential. • WS-PGRADE/gUSE Framework – supports the development and deployment of HPC application workflows across different types of Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) 5
  6. 6. cloudSME platform architecture 6
  7. 7. Interaction of tiers 7
  8. 8. Implemented cloud adapters • Computing: – Amazon EC2 – CloudSigma – OpenStack EC2 – OpenStack Nova – OpenNebula – Eucalyptus – HLRS NEC cluster – HLRS CRAY (considered) – CINECA Galileo Cluster – ROMEO Cluster – ETH Euler Cluster – … 8 • Storage:  Amazon S3  OpenStack S3  OpenStack Swift  Ceph RADOS  Eucalytpus Walrus  SCP …
  9. 9. Infrastructure Resources • Commercial clouds: – CloudSigma (CH/DE) & – Amazon (different regions) • OpenStack clouds: – University of Westminster (UK) & – University of Zaragoza (ES) • OpenNebula cloud: – MTA SZTAKI (HU) • HPC: – HLRS (DE), CINECA (IT), ROMEO (FR), ETH (CH) 9
  10. 10. Application software • Application requirements: – Scientific and technical applications from any domain, commercial or free / open source – Linux or Windows – Usually compute-intensive, batch and command line-oriented, but interactivity will be constantly improved. – Single-core or multi-core, single-node or multi-node (MPI, NFS, …) • Application areas: – Engineering and manufacturing (ASCOMP TransAT, OpenFOAM, Simul8, …) – Biology, pharma and chemistry (Rosetta, BLAST, AutoDock, Gromacs, …) – Generic (shell scripts, R, …) … and many more to follow. 10
  11. 11. cloudSME AppCenter 11
  12. 12. Example applications • cloudSME use cases and application areas currently include – computational fluid dynamics – engine simulation, and – manufacturing process optimization. • Example 1: ASCOMP/Eurobios – TransAT • Example 2: DHCAE/ProcEng Moser - DHCAE OpenFOAM® Solver 12
