StackHPC is proud to support the Open Infrastructure Foundation's
OpenInfra Live, a growing archive of
discussions around all things open infra.
As co-chair of the
OpenStack Scientific SIG, StackHPC's CTO Stig Telfer moderated
a lively discussion between a panel of technology leaders and
trail-blazers in the emerging phenomenon of software-defined
The Open Infrastructure Foundation's
SuperUser blog has put together an excellent summary of the session.
OpenStack's supporting role in HPC environments is well established, in a pattern where
private cloud provides flexible compute resources in tandem with a dedicated HPC supercomputer.
The OpenStack system serves to create models and scenarios for input, and analyse the data
generated as outputs from an HPC workload.
This discussion also highlighted the emergence of another, more prominent role for OpenStack, in providing
a software-defined supercomputer built entirely using open infrastructure.
