DescriptionThe five keys to success

As an HPC community, we’ve been debating the merits of hybrid clouds and cloud bursting for years. While there are barriers to be sure, in the past year we’ve seen a clear shift. Advances in systems and software have made cloud bursting not just practical, but an essential tool for HPC users to modernize and deploy new workloads. As is often the case, the trick is to plan carefully, choose the right technology, and stay laser-focused on your objectives and the bottom line.

In this talk, Univa’s Frist Ferstl, the father of Grid Engine, will discuss Univa’s Project Tortuga, open-source software that makes it easier than ever to deploy, configure and manage hybrid HPC clusters, and burst to your choice of cloud provider. Fritz will share details about the technology and Univa’s experience deploying practical cloud bursting solutions. He will also offer five key recommendations that may help make your journey to the cloud simple, seamless, and painless.
