The evolution of high performance computing on AWS Cloud
17 Apr 2016 - In a guest blog by Jeff Layton, Principal Tech, AWS Public Sector explains the evolution of HPC in the AWS Cloud. The Cloud allows you to go beyond thinking that HPC is only about clusters and that all applications must adapt that model, Layton says. If you have a new architecture in mind for your application or your workflow, you can simply and easily create it in the cloud. Do you want to use a combination of containers and microservices for your application? According to Layton, the AWS Cloud allows you to construct what you need with some very simple code. If the architecture doesnt work as well as you wanted, then you just turn off the system and stop paying for it.
