Running a Scientific Application on an OpenStack Cloud – #OpenStack

The scientific community is still largely wedded to a traditional HPC compute model where a task scheduler provisions bare metal nodes and the application runs directly on the node OS. Typically, the application is restricted to using the node’s software libraries and compiler toolchain. In our experience this compute model causes the development environment on the HPC cluster and the user’s desktop to differ, adding obstacles to software development. In addition, cluster software upgrades poten
