Awesome Architecture

Introduction: The goal of MIKELANGELO is to develop an approach and the accompanying software that will disrupt the traditional HPC and Private Cloud fields. Currently, the so-called hypervisors are used to divide a physical node into one or more virtual nodes (virtual machines – VMs), which leads to sharing of resources for an efficient overall…

Cancellous Bone Simulation

This blog post is one in the series of the use case descriptions. This use case runs usually in an HPC environment and complex enough to demonstrate, how to adapt an HPC application to the MIKELANGELO architecture and software stack. Introduction The purpose of  the Cancellous bone simulation is to understand the structure of the…

Making Torque ready for Virtual Machines

Follow @mikelangelo_eu This blog post presents the work done on enabling the virtual machines inside the Torque resource manager. First, what is Torque? Torque is an open source technology, fork of PBS, to schedule computing tasks (jobs) on big clusters and HPC installations, developed by Adaptive Computing. It consists of three major parts: (at least…
