Cloud Computing

Public Group active 4 years, 4 months ago

A place to exchange information about cloud computing – especially as it relates to high performance computing and its applications.

Magellan Project

Magellan is a research and development effort to establish a nationwide scientific mid-range distributed computing and data analysis testbed. It has two sites (NERSC and ALCF) with multiple 10’s of teraflops and multiple petabytes of storage, as well as appropriate cloud software tuned for moderate concurrency.

Results from both sites will be compared to existing mid-range resources in the Office of Science labs. These results will generate data for a cost-benefit analysis of various mid-range computing options for the Office of Science.
