OpenStack in the High Performance Computing context
20 Jan 2014 - 20 Jan 2014

Date: 20 January 2014, Monday
Time: 10 am – 12pm
Venue: Level 17, Charles Babbage Room, 1 Fusionopolis Way,Connexis South, Singapore 138632

Speaker: Jakub Chrzeszczyk, Cloud Architect, National Computational Infrastructure, The Australian National University

The talk will cover the differences between traditional cloud setups,focusing on low cost and high workload density and the HPC approach, which aims to achieve top performance. This will cover differences in the general system design, interconnect, local and shared storage and the configuration of cloud software for optimal performance in high performance computing.


Mr Jakub Chrzeszczyk is the Cloud Architect at the National Computational Infrastructure of the Australian National University, where they are implementing a cloud infrastructure high-performance computing. As the Technical Project Manager, he has been involved in many aspects of the project, including making recommendations to the OpenStack consortium, architecting the hardware and software platforms and making purchasing recommendations. 
Jakub Chrzeszczyk is a certified Redhat Architect with numerous Certificates of Expertise. His Master's Thesis entitled "Designing and Implementing a High Availability and High Performance Cluster for Web Applications using Linux" was published in 2008.
