NSF Supports Ma’s Research on Cloud HPC

Dr. Xiaosong Ma, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $311,998 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support her research proposal entitled “Enabling Cost-effective Cloud HPC.”
The award will run from October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2016. 
Abstract – The proposed work examines novel services built on top of public cloud infrastructure to enable cost-effective high-performance computing. We will explore the on-demand, elastic, and configurable features of cloud computing to complement the traditional supercomputer/cluster platforms. If successful, this research will result in tools that adaptively aggregate, configure, and re-configure cloud resources for different HPC needs, with the purpose of offering low-cost R&D environments for scalable parallel applications.
