project motivation
Project Motivation
  • Small clusters are needed
  • Similar to Amazon EC2, cloud service
    • National Security issues
  • Create, manage and modify virtual systems
  • Low cost software and hardware
so what is cloud computing
So….what is cloud computing?
  • A proven concept that allows on demand network access to a shared bundle of configurable computing resources.
  • Rapidly provisioned resources released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
  • Facilitated distribution on licenses for clients.
  • Realize the true client-server model.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

Private cloud

  • A particular type of cloud that is locally restricted in a private network.
  • For national labs such as LANL – Private clouds would be a must.
  • Using Eucalyptus – similar to Amazon’s cloud service EC2.
  • Clients instantiate their environment via a web browser.

results
Results?
  • Managed to instantiate 1 virtual machine instance from Eucalyptus
  • Inconsistent results
  • Used XEN to directly run a virtual machine
  • Small user base
  • Enterprise version vs. open source
  • Eucalyptus feasibility
moving forward
Moving Forward
  • Performance tests
    • Compute impact
    • I/O performance
  • Scale Larger
  • Hardware impact?
  • Full scale system
