Already a game-changer in the HPC field, CloudyCluster developers continue to enhance and strengthen its features to make HPC and Big Data clusters easier to deploy, run and manage from desktop and mobile devices.

CloudyCluster provides a web-based interface to create and manage scalable HPC and Big Data clusters on AWS. New features, available in version 1.1, bring additional value to climate modeling and weather forecasting requirements by providing enhanced application support for the CESM and the WRF. Now it's even easier to spin up an HPC cluster on the cloud for climate computer simulations and meteorological research. The newest release also provides full Globus integration, simplifying the process of uploading and transferring data among your HPC cluster and various computers. Globus file sharing also makes it easier for cross-continent collaboration on large-scale HPC projects.

The CloudyCluster 1.1 release supports automatic use of placement groups, which offers the benefit of low latency Ethernet connectivity between instances. Enhanced Networking is another improvement to CloudyCluster, allowing for higher performance, reduced latency and reduced jitter. Now, all clusters set up with CloudyCluster will automatically include enhanced networking for supported instance types.

Another improvement in the new release is ccqsub, a meta-scheduler or a wrapper, which provides a single interface for common schedulers such as Torque and in the future: SGE, Condor, and SLURM. It gives the schedulers autoscaling capability on the AWS Cloud, allowing users to let CloudyCluster select and deploy the AWS resources best suited for the needs of their jobs. Additional features of the release include certificate-based sign-on, support for the Torque 6 scheduler, Shibboleth and the Internet2 InCommon Federation.

Already a game-changer in the HPC field, CloudyCluster developers continue to enhance and strengthen its features to make HPC and Big Data clusters easier to deploy, run and manage from desktop and mobile devices. Large-scale computing is no longer restricted to those with data center access, and it is available to everyone on AWS Marketplace via the CloudyCluster interface.
