Cloudification of a Legacy Hydrological Simulator using Apache Spark
Date de parution
The field of hydrology usually relies on complex multiphysics systems and data collected from geographically distributed sensors in order to obtain good quality predictions and analysis of how wa- ter moves through the environment. Nowadays, the computational resources needed to run such com- plex simulators, and the increasing size of datasets related to the models have arisen an interest to- wards distributed infrastructures like clouds. This paper presents the results of applying a cloudifica- tion methodology to a legacy hydrological simulator (HydroGeoSphere), wrapped with an ensemble Kal- man filter. This work describes how the methodology was applied, the particularities of its implementation and configuration for the Apache Spark iterative map- reduce platform, and the results of an evaluation in a commodity cluster against an MPI implementation of the simulator.
