This paper describes a range of high performance computing (HPC) applications that are running today on Amazon Web Services (AWS). You will learn best practices for cloud deployment, for cluster and job management, and for the management of third-party software. This whitepaper covers HPC use cases that include highly distributed, highly parallel grid computing applications, as well as more traditional cluster computing applications that require a high level of nodeto-node communications. We also discuss HPC applications that require access to various types of high performance data storage. This whitepaper covers cost optimization. In particular, we describe how you can leverage Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Spot Instances and storage options such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), and Amazon Glacier for increased performance and significant cost savings when managing large, scalable HPC workloads.
