3 Resource Hungry Applications [Ref Hai Jin and Raj Buyya]
Solving grand challenge applications using computer modeling, simulation and analysis Aerospace Internet & Ecommerce Life Sciences Digital Biology 3 CAD/CAM Military Applications Military Applications Military Applications

4 Types of hungry application [ref: Coddington]
Information simulation - Compute dominate Information repository - Storage dominate Information access - Communication dominate Information integration - System of systems These applications are impossible to be solved using ordinary computing resources

5 We need to run faster, but How?
There are 3 ways to improve performance: Work Harder Work Smarter Get Help Computer Analogy Using faster hardware Optimized algorithms and techniques used to solve computational tasks Multiple computers to solve a particular task

6 In Summary – need more computing power
Improve the operating speed of processors & other components constrained by the speed of light, thermodynamic laws, & the high financial costs for processor fabrication Connect multiple processors together & coordinate their computational efforts parallel computers allow the sharing of a computational task among multiple processors Ref: Buyya

7 What will be our choices?
Supercomputer ? Cluster Computing ? Grid Computing ? Cloud Computing?

8 But these may be difficult to others, so?
We need to ‘collect’ these resources and share them among the needed people. This lead to Grid Computing concept.

9 Examples of Grid Computing
The Pacific Rim Application and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA) was formed in 2002 to establish sustained collaborations and advance the use of grid technologies in applications among a community of investigators working with leading institutions around the Pacific Rim. Four working groups focus our activities in the areas of: * Resources and Data * Biosciences * Telescience * Global Earth Observatory (GEO)

10 More on PRAGMA members have been doing a combination of the following:
- join their resources with PRAGMA grid - running grid applications in PRAGMA grid - develop, integrate, enhance, implement and share software in PRAGMA grid Our recent focus is virtualization. Some sites have been actively working together on VM technology.

11 More examples on Grid computing applications/researches
Deteksi kerusakan pipa, Inspeksi 100 km pipa dgn garis tengah 50 inci, data yang terkumpul 280 Terabytes (2.8 x 10^{14} bytes), kecepatan transfer 2.8 Gb. Hanya bisa diproses oleh SDK Grid computing, [ ref: inspektionmolch : akses 27 Sep 08] Analisis data aktifitas otak yang dikumpulkan dari instrument MEG (Magnmetoencephatolgraphy) adalah topik riset yg sangat penting karena mendorong para dokter untuk identifikasi simptom penyakit. Kerja sama Grid Lab – Univ Melbourne, Nimrod-G Project Monash Univ, dan MEG project – Osaka Univ [ref: akses 27 sep 08] Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research perlu 6 tahun waktu proses dgn komputer super, namun dengan PC Grid berjumlah 3700 desktop Pc, hanay perlu waktu proses 12 jam. Hemat dana sekitar 200 juta dollar untuk tiga tahun, kekuatan komputasi tercapai lebih dari 5 Tera-flops [Ian Foster,

12 Grid computing definition
the combination of computer resources from multiple administrative domains to reach a common goal. The Grid can be thought of as a distributed system with non-interactive workloads that involve a large number of files. Infrastruktur komputasi yang menyediakan akses berskala besar terhadap sumber daya komputasi yang tersebar secara geografis namun saling terhubung menjadi satu kesatuan fasilitas. Sumber daya ini termasuk antara lain supercomputer, system storage, sumber sumber data, dan instrument instrument.

13 Grid computing physical structure [Ian Foster]

14 Grid Architecture [GridBus]

15 Grid computing initiative from neighbor countries
Thailand – ThaiGrid Started at 2002 Funding : $ 6M (3 years) 10 univ., Weather Forecast Services, NECTEC 158 CPUs Singapore – NGP (National Grid Project) Started September 2002 3 univ., 5 ministries (MOE, MOH, MITA, MINDEF, MTI) Malaysia Proposal “National Technology Roadmap for Grid Computing” submitted to MOSTI (initiator: MIMOS Berhad, th. 2005) Regional forums: SEA Grid Forum (3 countries) ApGrid (14 countries)

16 Grid is not easy to developed and maintained
Ask others to provide them, and users use them as a Services then Grid computing will be function as Cloud computing;

17 Services in the Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS)
Platform as a Service (PaaS) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

18 Virtualization : Provisioning, Virtualization, billing,
SaaS – bisa dalam bentuk Aplikasi seperti CRM – customer relationship management, , PaaS – Platform, antara lain Programming Language, APIs, Development Environment, IaaS Virtualization : Provisioning, Virtualization, billing, Hardware : Memory, computation, Storage Colocation : the data center owner rents out floor space and provides power and cooling as well as a network connection

19 Some cloud vendors: amazon, amazon web services (AWS) offers a large number of cloud services. Focuses on Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and its supplementary storage services EC2 offers the user a choice of virtual machine templates that can be instantiated in a shared and virtualized environment, Each virtual machine is called Amazon Machine Image. The customer can use pre-packaged AMIs from Amazon and 3rd parties or they can build their own.

20 Appian- Offers management softwares to design an deploy business processes. The tool is available as a web portal for both business process designers and users, the design is faciliated with a graphic user interface that maps processes to web forms, End users are then able to access the functionality through a dash board of forms, Executives and managers can access the same web site for bottleneck analysis, real time visibility and aggregated high level analysis

21 ,
Google App Engine is a platform service. It provides basic run time environment, it eliminates many of the system administration and development challenges involved in building applications scale to million users, Another infrastructural services, used primarily by Google applications themselves is Google Big Table. It is a fast and extremely large-scale DBMS designed to scale into petabyte range across “hundreds or thousands of machines” On the SaaS, google offers some free and competitively priced services including Gmail, Google Calendar, Talk, Docs, and sites.

22 Cloud computing services by Indonesians?
Gratis: Esfindo (SaaS), InGrid (IaaS), …… Bayar : telkomcloud, webhosting, collocation, ….

23 Defining Clouds: There are many views for what is cloud computing?
Over 20 definitions: Buyya’s definition: "A Cloud is a type of parallel and distributed system consisting of a collection of inter-connected and virtualised computers that are dynamically provisioned and presented as one or more unified computing resources based on service-level agreements established through negotiation between the service provider and consumers.” Keywords: Virtualisation (VMs), Dynamic Provisioning (negotiation and SLAs), and Web 2.0 access interface Segala kebutuhan pengelolaan data di Internet dengan sumber daya yang disiapkan oleh suatu provider. [. H Suhartanto, 2011]

24 Clouds based on Ownership and Exposure [ref: Buyya]
Public/Internet Clouds 3rd party, multi-tenant Cloud infrastructure & services: * available on subscription basis (pay as you go) Private/Enterprise Clouds Cloud computing model run within a company’s own Data Center / infrastructure for internal and/or partners use. Hybrid/Mixed Clouds Mixed usage of private and public Clouds: Leasing public cloud services when private cloud capacity is insufficient

25 (Promised) Benefits of (Public) Clouds [ref: Buyya]
No upfront infrastructure investment No procuring hardware, setup, hosting, power, etc.. On demand access Lease what you need and when you need.. Efficient Resource Allocation Globally shared infrastructure, can always be kept busy by serving users from different time zones/regions... Nice Pricing Based on Usage, QoS, Supply and Demand, Loyalty, … Application Acceleration Parallelism for large-scale data analysis, what-if scenarios studies… Highly Availability, Scalable, and Energy Efficient Supports Creation of 3rd Party Services & Seamless offering Builds on infrastructure and follows similar Business model as Cloud

26 Prospects in Indonesia

33 inGRID: Portal
Portal/user interface provides the interface for a user to launch applications that will use the resources and services provided by the grid Just as a consumer sees the power grid as a receptacle in the wall, a grid user should not see all of the complexities of the computing grid. Security (GSI: Grid Security Infrastructure) provides security, including authentication, authorization, data encryption, and so on Broker (makes use of MDS: Monitoring & Discovery Service) to identify the available and appropriate resources to use within the grid Scheduler schedule the individual jobs to run on them Data management (RFT: Reliable File Transfer) secure and reliable method for moving files and data to various nodes within the grid Job and resource management (GRAM: Grid Resource Allocation & Management) provides the services to actually launch a job on a particular resource, check its status, and retrieve its results when it is complete

Muhammad Hilman, Heru Suhartanto, Arry Yanuar, Performance Analysis of Embarrassingly Parallel Application on Cluster Computer Environment : A Case Study of Virtual Screening with Autodock Vina 1.1 on Hastinapura Cluster, this conference.

35 Molecular dynamic simulation
used to study the solvation of proteins, the interaction of DNA-protein complexes and lipid systems, and study the ligand binding and folding of proteins. to produce a trajectory of molecules in a finite time period, where each the molecules in these simulations have positional parameters and momentum. be used to assist drug discovery. The usage of computers offer a method of in-silico as a complement to the method in-vitro and in-vivo that are commonly used in the process of drug discovery. Terminology in-silico, analog with in-vitro and in-vivo, refers to the use of computer in drug discovery studies GROMACS is used in the simulation.

36 Molecular Docking and Virtual Screening
Molecular docking is a computational procedure that attempts to predict non covalent binding of macromolecules. The goal is to predict the bound conformations and the binding affinity. The prediction process is based on information that embedded inside the chemical bond of substance. Autodock Vina is used in the simulation.

39 Design and Simulation of Indonesian Education Grid Topology using Gridsim Toolkit
discusses the design and simulation of an e-learning computer network topology, based on Grid computing technology, for Indonesian schools called the Indonesian Education Grid (abbreviated as IndoEdu-Grid). The establishment of such network without Grid computing capabilities will lead to redundancies of the idle resources. We proposed scenarios that have different network topologies based on their routers and links configuration. Each scenario will be run in the simulator using two packet scheduling algorithms, one will be FIFO (First In First Out) Scheduler and the other SCFQ (Self-Clocked Fair Queuing) Scheduler. The processing time of the job’s packets will be evaluated to determine the most effective network topology for IndoEdu-Grid

40 The entities The entities of our design are resources, users, and jobs or Gridlets Resource entities are responsible to perform computation on job entities in form of Gridlets sent by one or more users and send it back to the user. Our work uses one resource for each province; each resource consists of one Machine and each Machine consists of 4 PEs (processing elements). Users are entities responsible to submit jobs in form of Gridlet objects to the resources. The users are programmed to send jobs to a particular resource at the same time, thus we are able to gain more knowledge on the performance of Grid system in its peak load, when all the users are accessing the resource at the same time. Jobs in GridSim are represented as the objects of the class Gridlet provided by GridSim. In our work, each user will create three Gridlets having different lengths–5000 MI (millions instructions), 3000 MI, and 1000 MI. This was aimed to simulate the real situation where a user does not just send one job, but it can also send more than one job with different sizes and needs of computation powers.

41 The first scenario is a representation of our thought that divides the whole territory of Indonesia into three main sections–the western, central, and eastern part of Indonesia. Each of these three sections will be subdivided into parts or units that are smaller–the islands and/or archipelagos.

42 The second scenario is a representation of our thought that divides the whole territory of Indonesia directly into islands and/or archipelagos units. These islands and/or archipelagos will be divided again into province units.

43 The simulation environment
Hardware Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5800 processor with 2.0 GHz clock speed, 800 MHz FSB (Front Side Bus), and 2 MB L2 cache. 2048 MB RAM (Random Access Memory) with shared dynamically with Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. 320 GB Fujitsu MHZ2320BH G2 SATA harddisk with 5400 rpm rotation speed. Software 32-bit Microsoft Windows Vista™ Business operating system. JDK (Java Development Kit) version 1.6.0_05 with Java™ Runtime Environment 1.6.0_05-b13. GridSim version 5.0 beta. The simulation was run 10 times in each scenario to increase the validity of simulation results, and then the results were averaged. SCFQ scheduling algorithm, even-numbered users are set to have a weight 1, indicating that they have a higher priority, while odd-numbered users are set to have a weight 0, indicating that they have normal priority. This weighting is useful to determine the type of service (ToS) which is owned by the packets sent by the users. FIFO scheduling algorithm, all users by default are set to have a weight 0, so all sent packets will have the same ToS.

44 The simulation results
Average Simulation Results Data for the Entire Provinces per Gridlet Using FIFO and SCFQ Scheduling Algorithm Job = Gridlet, which simulates the job packets that contain information about the length of jobs in units of MI (millions instruction), the length of input and output files in units of bytes, starting and finishing execution time, and the owner of the jobs. three Gridlets #0, #1, #2 has different lengths–5000 MI (millions instructions), 3000 MI, and 1000 MI, respectively.

45 More Prospects More people are becoming interested in shared computing facilities, Many free of charge grid development tools are available, Develop a strong unit that capable building the Grid infrastructure, but it needs commitment and dedication from at least university level and government, or INHERENT can be improved, it will open more collaboration among universities, Nusantara Super Highway Rampung di 2015, "Nusantara Super Highway berbasis optical network merupakan kelanjutan dari cita-cita Telkom untuk menyatukan Indonesia melalui visi Nusantara 21 yang sudah dimulai sejak 2001 dengan teknologi berbasis satelit," /328/nusantara-super-highway-rampung-di-2015?i

46 Challenges Unreliable electricity supplies
No coordination at national level to have ICT research and development programs involving across government and private organizations Relies on grant fund which leads to other negatives effects such as, Most Indonesian funding resources do not allow hardware (computers) investment (only spare parts are allowed  ) Permanent human resources that manage the Grid, Maintenance of the grid to adapt with current technology development. Many organization are “very protective” to their computing resources, only a few are willing to share them.

47 Challenges - cont Only few (may one or two) faculties teach cluster, cloud and grid Computing. So only few master and understand them. Perhaps Cloud computing is the alternative solution in one way, however ……….the cloud itself has some challenges

48 Cloud Computing Challenges: Dealing with too many issues [ref Buyya]
Resource Metering Billing Pricing Scalability Reliability Virtualization QoS Service Level Agreements Energy Efficiency Provisioning on Demand Utility & Risk Management Security Privacy Trust Legal & Regulatory Uhm, I am not quite clear…Yet another complex IT paradigm? Software Eng. Complexity Programming Env. & Application Dev.

49 Indonesian Egov Grid services
Well, no need to wait, “ibadah” – the show must go on ….future works with positive impacts are waiting More bioinformatics, medical informatics, image analysis, finance with GPU computing environment, Indonesian Egov Grid services Indonesian Archeology and Culture-Grid services Indonesian Health-Grid services
