Getting the sizing right of a HPC cluster on premise is a tricky problem. Companies usually want to maximize the use of it while minimizing the waiting time for simulations to be submitted, trying to please both engineering and purchase departments. In this presentation, let’s see how we combined the elasticity of the cloud with the great performances of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure when it comes to HPC workload to solve this issue. The demo will also show the “cluster per job” strategy in action, taking advantage of automated deployment to have the HPC cluster ready in a few minutes.
