Serverless High-Performance Computing over Cloud


HPC clouds may provide fast access to fully configurable and dynamically scalable virtualized HPC clusters to address the complex and challenging computation and storage-intensive requirements. The complex environmental, software, and hardware requirements and dependencies on such systems make it challenging to carry out our large-scale simulations, prediction systems, and other data and compute-intensive workloads over the cloud. The article aims to present an architecture that enables HPC workloads to be serverless over the cloud (Shoc), one of the most critical cloud capabilities for HPC workloads. On one hand, Shoc utilizes the abstraction power of container technologies like Singularity and Docker, combined with the scheduling and resource management capabilities of Kubernetes. On the other hand, Shoc allows running any CPU-intensive and data-intensive workloads in the cloud without needing to manage HPC infrastructure, complex software, and hardware environment deployments.
