A place to exchange information about cloud computing – especially as it relates to high performance computing and its applications.
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 10â€™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.
