CERN the European Laboratory for Nuclear Research and SKA the Square Kilmeter Array are preparing the next generation of research infrastructure for the new large scale scientific instruments that will produce new magnitudes of data. In Sydney OpenStack Summit we presented the collaboration and the platform that we plan to develop for scaling science.
In this talk will present the work done related with Preemptible VMs and Containers on Baremetal.
Preemptible VMs are instances that use idle allocated resources in the infrastructure and can be terminated when this capacity is required. Containers in Baremetal eliminate the virtualization overhead enabling the container full performance required for scientific workloads.
We will present the current state, development and integration decisions and how these functionalities can be used in a common OpenStack infrastructure.
This talk will provide a brief overview of SKA and CERN, in terms of scientific goals and infrastructure.
Then we will describe Containers on Baremetal and Preemptible VMs and why they are important for the scientific community.
Finally, we will dive into the implementation work and how these functionalities can be used in a common OpenStack infrastructure.
