Scalable HPC Cloud

Most public cloud computing providers use virtual machines or Docker containers for IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service). This cannot meet the needs of high performance computing (HPC) users. HPC Scalable partners with the world leading supercomputer centers to offer cloud service for HPC users. Scalable HPC Cloud users can login to the supercomputer, transfer data. and submit jobs. Users can also use the available applications on the supercomputer without extra charge. In addition, they have the choice of uploading own code to compile and run.

Users are charged by number of core-hours with complementary of accessing to GPU, large memory, storage, and applications.
