The Cybermedia Center has recently built an experimental cloudbursting functionality on OCTOPUS. This functionality allows researchers to perform computation on Microsoft Azure in the same job submission fashion as OCTOPUS. Please see the following page for detail.
For those who use OCTOPUS general-purpose CPU nodes, we are looking for people who can cooperate in this test of performance measurement, comparison, etc. This test will be finished by December 27, 2019. Please forgive that we choose several applications in the case that there are many applicants.
|Application period||December 4 - 11|
|Qualification||users of OCTOPUS General purpose CPU nodes|
|Number of program||A small number
(In case of too many applications, we will carefully select application while taking various areas of balance into consideration)
The hardware configuration of the compute node on Azure is partly different from the OCTOPUS general-purpose CPU node.
