Accelerator modeling and simulation studies heavily rely on High Performance Computing (HPC). Public Cloud computing has opened a new service horizon for HPC by offering an on-demand, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Previously, we investigated using Amazon HPC public Cloud for lattice optimization applications and evaluated performance*. In this research, we use the Amazon VPC technology to extend local HPC resources to provide a seamless, hybrid, and secure environment when the demand for computing capacity spikes.
