Reconfigurable Cloud: Consolidating HPC and Commodity Applications in the Cloud
Cloud computing is emerging as an additional deployment option for some of the HPC applications. But still, it currently does not come without drawbacks for application performance. These performance issues take place due to resource contention, where one VM is able to impact the performance of another. This interference directly creates impact on performance and scalability of High Performance Computing (HPC) application. Additionally, virtualization overhead is also a barrier for adoption of cloud for HPC application. In this paper, the authors present their paper, reconfigurable cloud, cloud which is able to accommodate commodity application and HPC application on the same hardware.
