HNSciCloud use cases

HNSciCloud Early Adopter group of research organisations tested the HNSciCloud pilot platform services in different use cases. Goals, challenges and benefits of each use case are presented below.

CERN does not have the computing or financial resources to crunch all of the data on site. Recently cloud computing has come to public attention due to the promise of providing as much computing power as people require, simplifying management and reducing TCO. CMS is one of the LHC experiments in the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) collaboration, linking up 170 computing centres in 42 countries. Demonstrating that HNSciCloud can satisfy the requirements of LHC experiments has an enormous potential impact on cloud adoption in the particle physics environment. It could also be a driver for non-LHC experiments that do not have the human resources to move their computing on the cloud, by providing guidelines and best practices in order to simplify this process.
