Whether the need is to deal with demand peaks or even for a more regular usage, when considering the move to the Cloud for HPC workloads, the infrastructure cost quickly becomes a key question. CloudSHaper provides the answer in a meaningful way by spreading the costs in the standard categories already used by HPC administrators and executives: service nodes, compute costs, storage costs, data transfer costs and visualisation costs.
CloudSHaper is fed by your cluster’s logs and allows you to select which ones you want to consider for your evaluation. We have included transparently all the cloud services involved so that you can design in your words the cluster you need with the performances you require. CloudSHaper then dynamically queries the Cloud provider to include up-to-date price lists and present you budget estimates for different scenarios.
