High Performance Parallel Computing with Clouds and Cloud Technologies

  title={High Performance Parallel Computing with Clouds and Cloud Technologies},
  author={Jaliya Ekanayake and Geoffrey C. Fox},
Infrastructure services (Infrastructure-as-a-service), provided bycloud vendors, allow anyuserto provision a large number of compute instances fairly easily. Whether leased from public clouds or allocated from private clouds, utilizing these virtual resources to perform data/compute intensive analyses requires employing different parallel runtimes to implement such applications. Among many parallelizable problems, most "pleasingly parallel" applications canbe performed using MapReduee… CONTINUE READING
