High performance computing (HPC) on the cloud is an emerging approach that can potentially provide a significantly cheaper alternative to supercomputers. However, clouds are largely oriented towards multiprogramming workloads with no significant intercommunications. The placement of tightly coupled HPC virtual machines is thus not guaranteed to be physically affine, resulting in unpredictable communication times. This paper proposes a new cloud analytical model that describes the physical… CONTINUE READING
