XLcloud: Design, Develop and Integrate The Software Elements of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) infrastructure

The XLcloud project strives to establish the demonstration of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) platform based on OpenStack, that is designed to run a representative set of compute intensive workloads, including more specifically interactive games, interactive simulations and 3D graphics. Putting it altogether, the XLcloud platform architecture looks like this...


Check out the presentation: Provisioning the Cloud within XLcloud

@ XLcloud presentation at OW2con'13 Sylvain Bauza, Bull.
XLcloud is a three-year long collaborative project funded by the French FSN (Fonds national pour la Société Numérique) programme, call Cloud n° 1, that was initially submitted under the name ''Magellan''. XLcloud strives to establish the demonstration of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) platform based on OpenStack that is designed to run a representative set of compute intensive workloads including more specifically interactive games, interactive simulations and 3D graphic applications. In this context, provisioning a full stack from baremetal nodes to running PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) implies many challenges that XLCloud team has to deal with day-to-day. The goal of this talk is to discuss about the current state-of-art on how to deploy and configure Openstack, how these tools can help XLCloud to match its needs and the current status of the project by itself.


Discover the Screencast: Check out a real 3D application running into a GPU-accelerated instance!

XLcloud Screencast, Guillaume Thouvenin, Bull.
In this screencast you will see the bootstrap of an instance in devstack that has a GPU attached to it. From within the instance, I run an OpenGL benchmark called Heaven from Unigine. The screencast shows that the GPU load is for real thanks to a Ganglia monitoring dashboard. The software at work in this demo is comprised of the NVIDIA GPU GRID driver, TurboVNC, VirtualGL, the Unigine benchmark and Ganglia to visualize the ongoing workload.
