In this slidecast, Cycle Computing CEO Jason Stowe describes how the company provisioned a 10,000-core, top 114-equivalent supercomputer utilizing its CycleCloud service.

Since 2005, Cycle has helped clients maximize the world’s compute resources through its reliable, secure and elastic high performance computing (HPC) solutions, both internally and in the cloud. CycleCloud massively scaled up client resources to perform hundreds of thousands of computational tests in a matter of eight hours. Once the results were produced, the customer could just “turn off” those resources with no further charges. Additionally, the 10,000-core cluster was run on a cost of only $1,060/hour. Leveraging CycleCloud and Cycle’s HPC proficiency delivered these stats:

  • Infrastructure: 1250 instances with 8-core / 7-GB RAM
  • Cluster Size: 10,000 cores, 8.75 TB RAM, 2 PB of disk space total
  • Scale: Comparable to #114 of Top 500 Supercomputer list
  • Security: Engineered with HTTPS & 128/256-bit AES encryption
