The H2020 MIKELANGELO project was presented at ISC HPC 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany. At the annual conference which breaks record with attendance for another consecutive year, the MIKELANGELO project was presented in the Exhibition Area. The project was presented to all visitors by Daniel Vladušič (coordinator), Gregor Berginc (technical coordinator) – both XLAB – and Hossein Salahi – GWDG.
The presentations focused on the MIKELANGELO approach to virtualised HPC, HPC-cloud with KVM and OSv and integrations with OpenStack.
In particular, the OpenFOAM cloud app, new test cases and multiple propeller simulations with light aircraft manufacturer, Pipistrel, were highlighted. Other interesting solutions to help solve your I/O intensive applications problems were also presented – the MIKELANGELO dynamic management of I/O workloads and virtualization of RDMA/Infiniband NICs, leading to an optimised I/O in virtual environments, all of which are included in the first complete release of MIKELANGELO stack in July/August 2016.
