Bare-Metal High Performance Computing in the Cloud
November 15, 2018
This whitepaper introduces different types of cloud computing, presents benefits and disadvantages and shows how ?bare metal cloud? mitigates the disadvantages, and describes SkyScale?s Accelerated...
On June 8th, 2018, the world’s fastest supercomputer, the IBM/NVIDIA® Summit, began final testing at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. Peak performance comes in at over 200 petaflops and 3.3 exaflops for tensor operations.
Summit is a bare-metal high performance (HPC) in the cloud. The US Department of Energy owns Summit, access will generally be remote, and applications will run directly on the entire “bare-metal” machine under Linux with very limited projects selected and a large waitlist. 2018 is already fully booked and applications for use in 2019 have already closed at the end of June 2018.
SkyScale offers the same technology as Summit with our cost effective, extreme compute cloud platform. Learn more about bare-metal high performance cloud computing and how to get started with SkyScale today.
