Conversion from Hadoop to Openstack – An experiment with Scientific Cloud

Building an efficient cloud infrastructure to provision scientific applications takes a lot of fore-thought. There are many dimensions that could be defined to lay out the cloud architecture. Scalability, bandwidth, IO performance, CPU utilization, storage type and architecture, usability and provisioning interface, security etc. are some of the basic dimensions that are important in building a successful cloud. As much as these measures are considered crucial, the type of hardware and the quality of the interconnect can have a severe effect on the overall health of the cloud.

Over the next few weeks/months we’ll dive into various available technologies to explore the best possible combination of cloud infrastructure for scientific applications. We’ll discuss various aspects of deploying a cloud infrastructure and blog along the whole process.

Ride on.
