HPC Cloud computing offers better resource utilization and more software flexibility to researchers. There are also challenges. These include virtual machine administration complexities and less performance compared to traditional HPC clusters. As a budding community, we are always looking for credible experiences in using HPC cloud for different types of applications. The SHPCloud workshop is dedicated to disseminate research reports and experiences in HPC Cloud applications.
SHPCloud-2012 is the Second International Workshop of Sustainable High Performance Cloud Computing. The first workshop was held in Banff, Canada, September 2011 in collaboration with HPCC2011.
