Cloud computing is becoming an adoptable technology for many of the organizations with its dynamic scalability and usage of virtualized resources as a service through the Internet. It is growing rapidly with applications in almost any area, including academia. Cloud computing is model for enabling a convenient, on- demand and network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources, (networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimum management effort or service provider interaction. High Performance Computing (HPC) enables scientists and researchers to solve complex problems that require many computing capabilities. Cluster computing has become popular in academia and industry. Clusters of servers are used for a variety of distributed applications like simulation, data analysis, web services, and so on. Hence, one of the areas that need to be researched more is handling of large data sets in the cloud. La rge data set is one of important characteristics of HPC applications. In this paper, we will discuss private cloud infrastructure implementation for each university using OpenStack by considering HPC. Then, create a collaboration mechanism for each University private clouds throughout the country using a federated cloud architecture.
