Speaker: Mulyanto Poort, Rescale*

The cloud computing environment consists of many providers with endless hardware configurations, pricing options, and geographic constraints. One of the main reasons high-performance computing (HPC) in the cloud is because of the large amount and different types of hardware available. This makes the software developer responsible for developing highly scalable and portable software across different environments. Once you have a scalable piece of software, the challenge is, how can you test and deploy it in the cloud. Successfully running on these different clouds is not straightforward.

In this session, we lay out the challenges related to launching a software cloud using Rescale* Tools to resolve the challenges.
