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.

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.

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?

Of Clouds and Mass Spectrometers: The Varian Case

Jun 18, 2010 |

Use cases of real HPC happening in the cloud are becoming more common across industries, but life sciences research and development is one key area of movement. This doesn’t just mean drug, health or genomics research. Companies requiring compute-intensive simulation and design in the area and investigating their options as well, as in the case of medical device developer, Varian.

Outsourcing Versus Federation: Ian Foster on Grid and Cloud

Jun 16, 2010 |

In a recent interview grid luminary Ian Foster gave his opinion about the differences between grid and cloud and how the change is one that is rooted in concepts of outsourcing versus federation. Foster also provided insight about EC2 and clouds in HPC.
