A survey on cloud migration strategies for high performance computing

  • The cloud evolved into an attractive execution environment for parallel applications from the High Performance Computing (HPC) domain. Existing research recognized that parallel applications require architectural refactoring to benefit from cloud-specific properties (most importantly elasticity). However, architectural refactoring comes with many challenges and cannot be applied to all applications due to fundamental performance issues. Thus, during the last years, different cloud migration strategies have been considered for different classes of parallel applications. In this paper, we provide a survey on HPC cloud migration research. We investigate on the approaches applied and the parallel applications considered. Based on our findings, we identify and describe three cloud migration strategies.
