HPCKP'15 Conferences

Package Once / Run Anywhere Big Data and HPC workloads




Big data operations and high performance computing are amongst the largest beneficiaries of - and driving forces behind - the directional change toward hybrid and distributed cloud deployments.

In this talk Tryggvi Lárusson, CTO of GreenQloud will discuss how big data and HPC environments can benefit from streamlining and taking advantage of the emerging solutions designed specifically to cut down the limitations and bloat of technology.

Tryggvi will showcase why handling bare metal and virtual machines in the same manner, both in terms of management through services such as Advania’s HPC cloud powered by QStack™, and operations via CoreOS, greatly enhances productivity and performance.

He’ll give examples of implementations of Hadoop/HDFS clusters, and how “package once/run anywhere” is making it possible to run workloads transparently on cloud, bare metal or virtual machines via newer containerization concepts such as Docker.
