Cloud Science: Astrometric Processing in Amazon EC2/S3
Founder & CTO The Server Labs
Track:Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise
With the maturing of cloud computing, it is now feasible to run scientific applications in the cloud. Data storage and high performance computing resources are fundamental for scientific applications. Outsourcing these services leverages scalability, flexibility, high availability at lower prices compared with traditional in-house data processing. This session evaluates Amazon's EC2/S3 suitability for this scenario, by running a distributed astrometric process developed for the European Space Agency's Gaia mission in Amazon EC2. The aim is to demonstrate how cloud computing systems can be a cost-effective solution for HPC applications.
