Virtualized Cloud Computing for Exascale Performance

In this paper, the authors contend that achieving real exascale performance for a collection of useful applications requires the management features provided by virtualization and cloud computing. The critical concern is to achieve a performance target while minimizing cost and the relevant costs are largely related to bandwidth and power. Virtualization technologies provide the substrate for managing heterogeneous computing platforms, providing isolation among applications, optimizing resource allocation and communication, and customizing operating environments as needed for different workloads.
