AWS re:Invent 2015 | (CMP303) ResearchCloud: CfnCluster and Internet2 for Enterprise HPC


Biogen built ResearchCloud for large-scale processing of research data. This extension of our infrastructure capability allows us to be more nimble, process more data, scale as needed, and collaborate with external organizations. In this session, learn about the design choices we took into account when building ResearchCloud. We cover our implementation of Internet2 and AWS Direct Connect, and the challenges we encountered when scaling to speeds of 10 gigabits. We also discuss the architecture of InstantHPC, which combines CfnCluster with GlusterFS using secure templates.
