“The UberCloud Experiment is a unique model to break the barrier to High Performance Computing in the cloud. It pools all resources required for us to get a hand on HPC in the cloud to solve our real-world problem. The experiment provides us with valuable information for our HPC decision-making.” . . . . . . . . Frank Ding, PhD, Simulation & Computing Manager, Simpson Strong-Tie
“Today, a single engineer has tremendous computing power available. I created a virtual prototype of the valve and ran mechanical simulations in my computer workstation. Collaborating with Autodesk and the UberCloud Experiment, I ran more than 200 flow simulations in the cloud to ensure the design met performance goals. This development path did not exist five years ago.” . . . . . . . . Mark A. Lobo, P.E. – Principal, Lobo Engineering PLC.
UberCloud is best known for the UberCloud Experiment, the free, community driven effort that explores the end-to-end processes of accessing and using remote computing resources in High Performance Computing (HPC) centers and tech computing clouds, on demand. Participants of the experiment get hands on experience on using remote computing resources for their own projects; in the process learning how to cope with the challenges and resolving many of the common roadblocks. The project teams working on the end-users applications discuss their experience, the hurdles they ran into, their lessons learned, and the best practices, on the UberCloud community web site.
The UberCloud Experiment was started in July 2012, and since then has grown to over 2000 organizations and individuals from more than 70 countries. More than 150 teams have been formed since then and many of these teams are covered on the UberCloud community web site. UberCloud Experiment offers free trials for up to 1,000 CPU core hours. We have the experience of having handled over 150 such projects.
