Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 and Eucalyptus, Nimbus RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Does any one have the experiences to run Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 run on VMs hosted in Eucalyptus or Nimbus?  I heard of that both Eucalyputs and Nimbus do not support Windows VMs. If so, is there any other open source Cloud platform on which we can deploy the Windows VMs?

    Another question is about how Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 work with Xen. It seems that R1's network driver did not support Xen well, or vice versa. So the network performance is very slow when running Windows HPC on Xen.  How is the situation in the R2 version?

    We are trying to run few DryadLINQ applications on both bare-Windows and Windows VMs, and make a performance comparision between them.

    Thank you!
