Abstract:   The application is one of most important components in the HPC Cloud ecosystem. Many aspects have to be considered, such as: is my application available in the Cloud at all or do I have to port it into the Cloud; does my ISV offer licensing on demand and how do I get it; what is the best suited Cloud computing architecture for my application which provides best performance; where do I find this computing resource; and how do I optimize my software for it?
This conference session will present some of the main issues with algorithms and applications in the Cloud and how to approach and solve them. We start with looking at performance tuning on the platform and the algorithmic level and how this will improve performance. Then, we will discuss the emerging trends towards convergence of Cloud and HPC interconnect requirements due to both market forces and increasingly aligned performance requirements in both HPC and large scale data analytics applications. Finally, we will highlight several real engineering applications in the HPC Cloud, as performed under the umbrella of the UberCloud HPC Experiment.
