Workshop on Grid and High Performance Computing

USTH, Hanoi, Vietnam
February 23-24th, 2017

1. Background

Last year, the USTH consortium organized working groups for structuring research in some strategic fields. Two topics were selected in the area of ICT:

  • IoT and sensor networks
  • grid and high performance computing

In previous years, we observed the emergence of two hot topics which are cloud computing and big data. While these two topics are addressed by many communities of computer sciences, we are here concerned by the infrastructures that are used to host cloud computing and big data platforms.

Such infrastructures are generally called data centers. They are built from the aggregation of many interconnected hardware servers, to provide a computing capacity for hosting cloud or big data applications. Notice that the spectrum of considered applications is very broad and can include (not exhaustively) HPC, simulation, data mining, image processing as well as Web applications.

In this context, we are mainly interested in the software, at the operating system level and middleware level, that is used to exploit such a data center. The overall goal of these software is to efficiently manage ressources (computing, memory, storage, network).
