Dynamic cloud resource for high-energy physics community

February 15, 2016

To meet the cycles of variable computing resource consumption, the HEP Cloud project was launched by the Scientific Computing Division of Fermilab in June 2015. Its goal is to develop a virtual facility that provides a common interface to access a variety of physical computing resources, including local clusters, grids, high-performance computers, and community and commercial clouds. In its first phase, the project is evaluating the use of the “elastic” provisioning model offered by commercial clouds such as Amazon Web Services. Read more:
