Beschreibung der Arbeit:

The emering trend of cloud services and cloud computing is pushing into all fields of computation. Even in the area of high performance computing (HPC) cloud technology is gaining more and more attention [1]. The aim of this B.Sc./M.Sc. thesis is to conduct a thorough analysis and evaluation of the impact of cloud infrastructure on the well established waLBerla HPC framework [2]. For this purpose waLBerla has to be setup ``in the cloud'', i.e., on a virtual cluster based on OpenNebula [3].

- Setup of waLBerla on cloud infrastructure (OpenNebula).
- Identification and evaluation of potential and factual performance factors.
- Evaluation of Performance and scalability.
- Outline of possibilities for cloud awareness in waLBerla.
