That question was at the heart of Cycle Computing’s BigScience Challenge. Now winner Victor Ruotti of the Morgridge Institute for Research has completed his utility supercomputing run, logging over a compute century on the Amazon cloud. The results will be used to build an indexing system for stem cells and their derivatives.

When Time Is of the Egress: Optimizing Your Transfers

Jul 31, 2012 |

Traditionally running scientific workloads in AWS provides a diverse toolkit that allows researchers to easily sling data around different time zones, regions, or even globally once the data is inside of the infrastructure sandbox. However, getting data in and out of AWS has historically been more of a challenge. Cycle Computing’s Andrew Kaczorek and Dan Harris offer some helpful tips on optimizing ingress and egress transfers.

Cycle Spins Up 50,000-core Cluster in Amazon Cloud

Apr 24, 2012 |

The case for utility supercomputing just got a lot bigger, literally. Cycle Computing has created a 50,000-core virtual supercomputer to assist in the development of novel drug compounds for cancer research.

CycleCloud BigScience Challenge Boosts Stem Cell Research

Mar 13, 2012 |

Cycle Computing has proclaimed the winner of the 2011 CycleCloud BigScience Challenge. Victor Ruotti, a computational biologist at the Morgridge Institute for Research, will receive $10,000 in credit from Cycle Computing and four hours of CycleCloud engineering support, plus an additional $2,500 in credit from Amazon Web Services. The award will be used for cutting-edge stem cell research.

Cycle Computing Spins Big Science

Nov 19, 2011 |

HPC in the Cloud talks to Cycle Computing CEO Jason Stowe at SC11 to get the details on the CycleCloud BigScience Challenge 2011. Cycle crafted the contest based on the noble ideal that science should not be hindered by lack of computational resources. So the company put out the call to non-profit institutions: do you have an HPC problem that will benefit humanity in a large-scale way?

Supercomputer in the Cloud Speeds Biotech Research

Apr 8, 2011 |

With one of the largest biotechnology events in the world just around the corner, an announcement that provides details about a supercomputer dedicated exclusively to a biosciences application is bound to draw some attention. However, when that machine could be placed in the top 100 of the Top500 list of the world’s most powerful clusters and exists only in the cloud, it is certainly worth taking a second look at.
