The authors analyze a hybrid High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure architecture that provides predictable execution of scientific applications and scales from a single resource to multiple resources, with different ownership, policy and geographic locations. Identify three paradigms in the evolution of HPC and high-throughput computing: owner-centric HPC (traditional), grid computing and cloud computing. Describe the concept of elastic cluster and show how it can be used to achieve effective and predictable execution of HPC workloads. Then, they discuss Implementation aspects and propose a new distributed information system design that combines features of distributed hash tables and relational databases.
