from the read-this free-book-while eating-lunch department
The platform is offering a free (this week) pdf-book called The State of HPC Cloud. From their web page:
We are pleased to announce that the first book from Next Platform Press, titled “The State of HPC Cloud: 2016 Edition,” is complete. The printed book will be available on Amazon.com and other online bookstores in December, 2016. However, in the meantime, supercomputing cloud company, Nimbix, is backing an effort to offer a digital download edition for free for this entire week—from October 31, until November 6.
This resource is not a bunch of industry promotional papers slapped together to look like a book. The free pdf-book is 80 pages and has extensive references. Good stuff and worth reading. Get it before Nov 6.
