Features and Benefits of Innovative HPC Clusters
Computer clusters that utilize numerous commodity servers have replaced expensive parallel supercomputers.
However, the concerns related to data and its complexities seem to have increased in number. This makes
companies invest huge capital on fixed-sized clusters that has their own conventional challenges of increasing the
utilization, lessening time-to-result for users and bringing down operational expenses.
HPC clusters or Cloud HPC clusters can create clusters without worrying about having different operating systems,
applications, encryption, security and other allied software application. Scientists are able to create clusters that
can add servers automatically and turn the servers off when the work is done. This allows the science researchers
to carry on calculations only when they require computing power.
In order to have a clear understanding of expenses, let us have a look at the HPC Clusters prior to cloud computing.
When purchasing a cluster, researchers would size it to finish their largest calculation suite efficiently in a time
they have fixed. Along with storage, the same sizing and planning would take place to assure that there is sufficient
space to support the working data and the outcome of the calculations. Buying the cluster needs heavy capital
investments for machines and filers are needed to carry on calculations. Hence, when a cluster is being operated
for the first time, it is not in its full capacity.
In the recent past, eminent IT and other companies have come up with built-to-order HPC cluster solutions that
offer the customers with speed access to data, manage growth efficiently and seamlessly and bring down risk
factors. The design will benefit a wide array of application environments comprising the ones optimized for
financial services, manufacturing, industrial design, government, life sciences and education.
Whether your workloads requires a huge complex cluster or an office cluster, eminent service providers allows you
in establishing well-integrated and dynamic HPC cluster infrastructure that is simple to manage and implement.
Furthermore, the market players in HPC cluster solutions have an alliance with the hardware providers and HPC
middleware technologies. This assists the users to have a contact point for a complete cluster application that
assures less risk.
Leading brands offers cost efficient personalized HPC clusters that offer a scalable performance and helps in
leveraging high speed interconnects industry standard servers, open source infrastructure or software. These
service providers are also leading OEM manufacturers dealing in OEM appliances.
