A Cloud for Clouds: Weather Research and Forecasting on a Public Cloud Infrastructure

The Weather Research & Forecasting (WRF) Model is a high performance computing application used by many worldwide meteorological agencies. Its execution may benefit from the cloud computing paradigm and from public cloud infrastructures in particular, but only if the parameters are chosen wisely. An optimal infrastructure by means of cost can be instantiated for a given deadline, and an optimal infrastructure by means of performance can be instantiated for a given budget. With this in mind, we provide the optimal parameters for the execution of the WRF on a public cloud infrastructure such as Amazon Web Services.
