The Art of Preparing OSv Packages

In this post we describe the use of the Capstan tool being extended within MIKELANGELO project. Capstan is a member of the Lightweight Execution Environment Toolbox (LEET) responsible for the management of composable application packages and OSv unikernel lifecycle. This post explains how these packages are prepared so that they are 100% compatible with OSv…

OpenFOAM aerodynamic use case

Pipistrel, a Slovenian light aircraft manufacturer, uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations in order to design its aircrafts. Pipistrel is currently limited to a small in-house cluster, that is why it is exploring different options in order to increase the fidelity and reduce the calculations time of its CFD simulations. Pipistrel’s main CFD software is…

Openstack meets MIKELANGELO and OSv

MIKELANGELO was at the OpenStack Summit event, presenting the talk titled HPC, Unikernels and OpenStack, as part of the HPC Research track. The session focused on lessons learned while integrating HPC workloads with unikernels on top of OpenStack.  This blog post is a summary of the presentation given by project’s coordinators, Daniel Vladušič and Gregor…

The Data Management Plan – Our Experience

As Mikelangelo is focusing on the performance issues in Cloud and HPC technology stacks, we’re in a position where traceability of our experiments is of significant importance. We need to facilitate both ourselves in the later stages of the project as well as others to reproduce our experiments in a fully controlled way. To this…

The Irish Summer of 2015

The Mikelangelo Team The second Mikelangelo face-to-face meeting (10th and 11th of June 2015) brought summer to Ireland, all 3 days of it, if we’re to believe the taxi driver. Intel kindly hosted the general assembly meeting at their facilities in Leixlip. The main objective of the meeting was to define and strengthen the project’s objectives before…
