Amazon AWS slides into HPC market.

Interesting timing as we are just now getting quotes for an HPC system.

Letter from Amazon:

Dear AWS Community,

Over the past month, several AWS service teams have released exciting features and capabilities to help customers be successful. Amazon EC2 has released several features, including Cluster Compute Instances, designed for high-performance computing (HPC) applications and support for user managed kernels. Amazon S3 has released support for Bucket Policies and support for Reduced Redundancy Storage in the AWS Management Console. Amazon Simple Queue Service has introduced a free tier, giving customers the first 100,000 requests at no charge. We have also released several resources: a web hosting whitepaper, a new Mechanical Turk best practices guide, and developer resources for Windows and .NET.

  1. UPEI in general or Robertson?

    I've recently started collaborating a bit closer with the people at ACEnet, and thus would be quite interested in getting involved with the deployment and administration of any HPC infrastructure that would be acquired by the university.

    Keep me in the loop.
