DescriptionBringing HPC Clusters to the Cloud with Infrastructure as Code
Cloud and High Performance Computing used to be completely separate realms. This is changing – finally. But some important questions remain:
- Are the hyperscalers’ present offerings actually suitable for industrial HPC workloads?
- Can cloud infrastructure deployment be simple, easily repeatable, and vendor agnostic?
We address scenarios arising from industrial CAE workloads, introduce matching HPC cluster architectures, and show how HashiCorp’s “Packer” and “Terraform” Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools can be used to implement them in a vendor-agnostic way.
