Cloud computing is a viable technology for select research computing applications. To learn more, read the XSEDE Cloud Survey Report. This report analyzes data from 80 projects from around the globe. Cloud benefits and challenges are described from a user perspective.
Building a Cloud for Research
CAC was early adopter of cloud technologies. Lessons learned helped us to design a public cloud service called Red Cloud.
Red Cloud delivers on-demand elasticity for applications such as embarrassingly parallel workloads, science gateways, and academic labs. Users have access to dedicated rather than oversubscribed CPU cores and RAM and there is no charge for network traffic. These features are especially appealing to researchers.
CAC also architects, deploys, and operates private clouds for clients with unique requirements such as HIPAA data protection.
