One Click HPC - Powered by Univa and RightScale


Published on

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.

  22. 22. Demonstration<br />
  23. 23. Best Practices for Data<br />Many possible solutions exist. Consider…<br />Storing data in Amazon’s S3 service and accessing via S3FS<br />Ingesting data into S3 then distributing to mounted EBS volumes<br />Utilize ‘rsync’ or ‘scp’ to move files from your site into EBS volumes<br />Utilizing Amazon’s public datasets<br />Launch your Grid Engine geographically close to your data<br />This solution is supported in AWS regions worldwide<br />Moving data into Amazon’s cloud is free!<br />
  24. 24. Best Practices for Applications<br />Utilize your current Grid Engine application deployment strategy<br />Utilize RightScale’sServerTemplates<br />Upload your applications to your Queue Master node, and distribute them to your Execution Hosts<br />Install the application on a NFS mounted filesystem, then mount that filesystem on all of the compute nodes in the cluster<br />
  25. 25. HPC in the Cloud - Security<br />AWS meets several levels of security compliance<br />FISMA Low<br />PCI DSS Level 1<br />ISO 27001<br />SAS70 type II<br />HIPAA<br />Amazon’s Security Center:<br />Additional user & account management via RightScale<br />Infrastructure & security auditing available via RightScale<br />
  26. 26. Solution Pricing<br /><ul><li>Hourly and monthly pricing plans available
  27. 27. Hourly pricing starts at $0.02 / node / hour (for Univa GE On Demand)
  28. 28. Monthly plans available for steady-state usage
  29. 29. Inbound data transfer is free! on Amazon Web Services</li></ul>Univa Grid Engine On Demand<br />RightScale Subscription<br /><br />Underlying Infrastructure Costs<br /><br />
  30. 30. Agility Example: Cost-neutral Equation<br />Total processing time: 500 hours<br />10,000<br />jobs<br />Output data<br />2 server cloud<br />Total processing time: 1 hour<br />10,000<br />jobs<br />Output data<br />1000 server cloud<br />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.<br />(assuming each server can process 10 jobs/hour)<br />
  31. 31.
