Great post guys. What you're doing to bring the cloud to HPC is fantastic. At Cloudscale we're also laser focussed on the challenge of delivering game-changing performance on Amazon cluster hardware, but from an application-specific perspective. In our case, the application is low-latency realtime analytics. Over on Werner's blog about the new GPU instances we posted some of our new Cloud Speed Records for analytics.


The movement led by Amazon (with Cluster and GPU instances), and backed by software companies like Cycle (for HPC) and Cloudscale (for analytics) now seems unstoppable. It's going to be harder and harder to justify spending huge amounts on private compute clusters when there is this kind of incredible price-performance advantage available in the cloud.
