Exploiting Cloud Computing for Algorithm Development

O'Brien, Neil S., Johnston, Steven J., Hart, Elizabeth E., Djidjeli, Kamal and Cox, Simon J. (2011) Exploiting Cloud Computing for Algorithm Development At 2011 International Conference on Cyber-Enabled Distributed Computing and Knowledge Discovery (CyberC), China. 10 - 12 Oct 2011. 13 pp. (doi:10.1109/CyberC.2011.60).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We consider the application of cloud computing to the process of algorithm development. We introduce a case study focusing on the development of a novel algorithm in computational electromagnetics, illustrating several challenging areas for algorithm developers where cloud-based architectures can deliver enhanced productivity and potentially save costs. The development, verification and tuning of our algorithm have all been assisted by cloud-based technologies. Our preliminary results both demonstrate the potential of the algorithm to solve the problems accurately, and of cloud-based architectures to accelerate the development and verification process. We propose that cloud-based architectures will in the future play a greater role in the development of algorithms; saving costs by improving hardware utilisation, and reducing turnaround time.
