Workshop: First Combined International Workshop on Interactive Urgent Supercomputing
Authors: Rohan Basu Roy and Devesh Tiwari (Northeastern University)
Abstract: Unfortunately, the serverless computing model is not traditionally designed for scientific applications. Serverless computing platforms pose multiple design and implementation challenges that make it difficult for scientific workflow execution. Even if one could engineer a system to leverage the serverless platform for scientific workflows, the resulting execution would be sub-optimal and may not respond to real-time needs. This talk will describe the design and implementation of a system that overcomes these challenges and makes serverless attractive for scientific workflows. We will show how we can leverage the serverless computing model for executing HPC workflows.
