Accelerated Computing in FedCloud

HP Blade system: SMART cluster
IBM system: 8x IBM dx360 M4 (2x Intel E5-2670 @ 2.6 GHz, 64GB RAM, 2x500 GB scratch disk, 2x NVIDIA Tesla K20 with 5GB RAM and 2496 CUDA cores) + 10Gbps Ethernet (in 8 nodes)

With the advent of cloud computing, business models and user expectations are shifting towards on-demand and pay-per-use service provision increasing flexibility and agility. This approach also allows researchers and resource providers to better understand costs to access individual services and would enable the creation of innovative business models and pricing schemes.
