Call for volunteers for tests on OCTOPUS-Azure cloudbursting environment

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.
Press release

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 conditions

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)
