Cloud computing is defined as on demand offering of computing resources (infrastructure, platform and software) as a service over the internet using virtualisation technology. An advantage of cloud computing is that the computing resources can be allocated / deallocated automatically depending on the current demand of these resources; taking resources from idle users / software and giving it to active users / software thus optimising resource utilisation. High Performance Computing is the use of parallel processing and distributed computing to achieve higher computing power for running advanced and complex programmes or simulations efficiently, reliably and quickly. Hence, High Performance Cloud Computing is the process of high computation on cloud to gain advantages of the cloud computing.
