ATMOSPHERE will be leading a session at the upcoming High Performance Computing 2018 Workshop (HPC2018): From Clouds and Big Data to Exascale and Beyond.

HPC2018, taking place from 2nd to 6th June 2018 in Cetrato (Italy) is a scientific workshop which aims to shed some light on key topics in advanced high-performance computing (HPC) systems and, in particular, to address the aforementioned contemporary scheduling, scaling, fault tolerance, and emerging application topics.

The workshop will include roughly fifty invited talks and associated panels by experts in the field.

ATMOSPHERE was invited to be a speaker at HPC2018 workshop. Francisco Brasileiro, Brazilian Coordinator of ATMOSPHERE and Professor at Federal University of Campina Grande, will present a talk on “Fogbow: A Middleware for the Federation of IaaS Cloud Providers”.

The federation of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud providers has been proposed to improve their efficiency, allowing them not only to better accommodate the natural fluctuations over time of their demands, but also to deal with users that require their applications to be deployed in a geographically-distributed fashion. 

Francisco Brasileiro will present the design and implementation of a middleware that allows the fast and non-intrusive deployment of very large federations of IaaS cloud providers. The use of the middleware in production systems will be also discussed, providing concrete evidences of its suitability.
