Utility HPC: What Every Enterprise Can Learn from Utility Supercomputing

Jun 3, 2013 |

Whether your organization’s compute demands warrant 50 cores of HPC, or 50,000 cores, the management challenges are actually quite similar. It turns out that the same management software used to prepare a cluster of 10,000+ cores can actually create small clusters that much more reliably. So what lessons can any Enterprise IT organization learn from the experiences of their larger compute-consuming colleagues?

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.

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.
