Why XtremWeb-CH on the Cloud?
The hardware infrastructure of XtremWeb-CH comes from “volunteer providers”. With such infrastructure, it’s very hard to meet “non conventional” requirements of HPC applications. We propose an API which allow programmers to depoy XtremWeb-CH workers on three cloud infrastructures : Amazon, Azure and OpenStack. The goal is to use Cloud as a plug-in to extend the infrastructure of XtremWeb-CH.
A full documentation of the API is available here. Please take note that you should setup your cloud account before using this API.
You will need:
- For Amazon: your accessKeyId and secretkey,
- For OpenStack: you login and password and,
- For Azure : your subscriptionId.
