Paper Overview

As computer systems, networking equipment and storage have dramatically decreased in price, many types of problems that previously were too expensive to automate are now being automated. Clusters of computers combined with inexpensive parallel processing monitors have been used to address needs in the areas of risk management, non-destructive testing, architectural or engineering modeling and the creation of high quality digital content.

The key issue is that administrative staff, real estate, clusters of machines, their storage systems and the required networking equipment can be too expensive for organizations. Even if the organization is large enough to have its own datacenter, systems used for technical computing are still expensive, take up space in the organization’s datacenter, consume a great deal of power and produce a great deal of heat.

This has meant that only the largest of organizations, or organizations having applications that produce so much revenue that the costs of computing, of datacenter real estate, of power and of staff are quickly submerged.

Cloud computing suppliers have begun to present infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offerings that have made it possible for this technology to be applied in many more areas.

Axceleon’s CloudFuzion can be of help managing clusters of cloud computing resources.
