Fuzzball (HPC 2.0): Workflows & Solutions for HPC Use-Cases

About Fuzzball: HPC-2.0
“HPC2.0 – The Next Generation of High Performance Computing”

Imagine a computing environment so powerful that it can orchestrate workflows, services, and data while maintaining supply chain integrity from on premise, to cloud, and to the edge. Including the ability to support multiple systems and multiple clouds, federated into a virtual cloud, where every workload lands based on architecture availability, cost, and data management policies.

This is Fuzzball

Integrate multiple HPC resources into One:
Geographically dispersed on-premise supercomputers, Fuzzball is designed as a cloud native and hybrid, federated computing platform for unification of geographically distributed HPC instances whether on-premise or cloud.

Meta scheduling & orchestration across hybrid resources:
Orchestration across architectures and resources.
Scheduling based on cost of compute, data & availability of compute.
Data (including: Locality, Mobility, Gravity, and Security).

Cloud-based HPC clusters and nodes:
HPC resources can be on-premise, multi-premise, cloud, multi-cloud, and federated.
Cloud based resources are elastic based on jobs, resource policies & data.
Our platform supports all major clouds natively, Kubernetes, as well as custom cloud resources.

A unified workload and resource management platform:
Unifying the end-user and administrator experience no matter where you utilize the platform is a design principle. A user interface (UI) application for the submission, tracking, and management of HPC jobs and workflows which is completely API driven with a command line interface as well as a GUI interface. This provides monitoring and management of all HPC resources leveraging standard enterprise monitoring and management of all resources in our platform.

“Fuzzball is readily capable of expanding to integrate new physical or cloud-based HPC assets down to the node level, even the component level. Fuzzball can be easily enhanced with FPGAs and GPUs or the newest network protocols to take advantage of enhancements as they come to market. No more being locked in by anyone or anything.”
