Cloud Computing

RunTime Computing Solutions specializes in working with scientists and engineers who need to solve complex science, engineering and business problems. We assist technical computing and HPC customers with both Amazon EC2 and OpenStack cloud computing environments.

Amazon EC2

Amazon EC2 is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) which requires sophisticated application development skills and advanced technical know-how to get up and running. RunTime Computing helps technical computing users in a number of ways.

  • Configure Amazon EC2 cloud computing environments
  • Establish EC2 environments to extend existing in-house technical computing environments
  • Use StarCluster open source clustering software to perform cluster computing in Amazon EC2
  • Train customers how to work seamlessly between their in-house environments and Amazon EC2
  • Migrate technical Windows applications to Amazon EC2
  • Security, file systems, scalability, virtual instance performance
  • How to choose the right cost and performance of virtual instances
  • OpenStack

    OpenStack is an open source IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) utilized to build private clouds. It offers a customer-owned alternative to using Amazon EC2, Rackspace, or other tier-1 cloud providers. Like Amazon EC2, OpenStack has many tools and capabilities. RunTime helps technical computing customers pick the right components and utilize tools such as Crowbar. RunTime has also helped customers integrate the VMWare hypervisor into an OpenStack environment for portions of their deployment.
