A functional demonstration Many organizations are wrestling with the economics of cloud computing. This is especially true in high-performance computing (HPC) and analytics where applications often demand clustered, scaled-out infrastructure. These types of workloads are often “spiky” or unpredictable and the costs associated with infrastructure can be substantial. As a few examples: A (...)
