Linux as Hypervisor with KVM is particularly performant virtualization technology to use in scientific computing environments, thanks especially to its (out of sync) secondary MMU management of the shadow page tables and it support for CPUs with EPT or NPT. In addition KVM leverages: the efficiency, testing and reliability of the huge pool of Linux Kernel device drivers, the close...

The talk will cover various techniques within the LSF Workload Management system for promoting higher efficiency with a non-homogeneous workload: - How to guarantee that parallel jobs can run in a mixed sequential/parallel environment (slot reservation /memory reservation/backfill) - How to maximize the efficiency on multicpu/multicore machines by using CPU binding - How to maximize the...

Internet Services group provides the hardware and OS layers for services operated by different CERN organizational units. Within this framework, a user can ask for a new virtual server from a web browser and have it ready within 15 minutes. The latest release of the virtual infrastructure is based on Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager, management SOAP web services and user web...

In this talk we will present a load-driven virtual machine provisioning mechanism based on Platform Virtual Machine Orchestrator (VMO). LSF and VMO are coupled to manage virtual machines that meet the requirements of the jobs. The underlying infrastructure uses Quattor/LANDB/CDB and LEMON monitoring which makes this virtual machine prototype compatible with the existing operations procedures.

In the original LHC Computing Grid, it was not possible to run parallel jobs which rely on communication between concurrent processes. Upon request of the user community, an MPI implementation on the Grid has been created. Recently, an MPI working group has been setup to investigate the bottlenecks with this MPI implementation both for system administrators and for users. Another task of...

21. The INFN experience with virtualized computing services and perspectives for integration of Grid and Cloud services in EGI (European Grid Initiative)
Davide Salomoni (INFN-CNAF)
6/26/09, 10:30 AM
In this talk we'll describe how INFN approached the problem of virtualizing existing computing farms, the technology and performance studies that were carried out, and a framework for the integration of both Grid and Cloud virtualized services into a distributed computing infrastructure like EGI.
