Discover methods and tools to build a compute node and small cluster application that can scale with on-demand high-performance computing (HPC) by leveraging the cloud. This series takes an in-depth look at how to address unique challenges while tapping and leveraging the efficiency of warehouse-scale on-demand HPC. The approach allows the architect to build locally for expected workload and to spill over into on-demand cloud HPC for peak loads. Part 1 focuses on what the system builder and HPC application developer can do to most efficiently scale your system and application.
