  "This paper presents a detailed view of a system called Deep Cloud, 
   which enables the offering of High Performance Computing (HPC) 
   capabilities as a service, and the design decisions and architectural
   considerations involved in building such a system. Our system straddles
   traditional Grid computing and emerging Infrastructure-as-a-service
   (IaaS) systems." .....

  ......"However, we extend the key principles from IaaS to enable predictable
   resource allocation of HPC resources with a pay-as-you-go model. Our 
   approach uses dynamic pricing to shape demand for HPC resources, while
   providing access to HPC resources for both interactive and batched 
   scientific workloads. We also describe a novel approach to HPC resource
   catalog creation: the conversion of an HPC 3D topology into an easily
   calculable resource inventory that supports predictable reservation and


  "This enables a dynamic resource placement mechanism for reservation 
   requests which we call Just-In-Time placement. Just-In-Time placement 
   collectively performs resource placement to achieve optimal HPC resource
