Abstract

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.
