Pilvi-HPC - Cloud-Based High-Performance Computing Servers
Temporal computing needs (where one needs extra resources only some of the time, not 24/7) like in High performance computing (HPC) aka research computing is something that one can do in the cloud very cost effectively. Pilvi-HPC offers a turn-key solution for setting up and using these services via easy-to-use remote desktop.

Pilvi-HPC allows your organization to leverage cloud-based high-performance computing (HPC) servers, and clusters, and even GPGPU systems with ease. With a few clicks of the mouse and no knowledge of cloud computing you can start running your software on powerful custom-configured HPC servers in Amazon AWS cloud that could otherwise cost you up to tens of thousands of dollars to purchase, setup and maintain.


Notable features:
  • Turn-key solution. You tell us your functional and technical specs, we build and configure the OS, SW, and HW stack in the Amazon AWS cloud, we test and verify the solution with your sample code, and you just start computing.
  • Easy to use, no complicated setup or instructions needed for managing (e.g. starting and deleting) your cloud based compute servers. Just choose the server type from a menu in the Pilvi-HPC management portal and click start for launching your server.
  • User-friendly automated graphical remote desktop access to the compute servers
  • Browser based intuitive file transfer application for transferring data to and from the compute servers
  • User's home directory /home is in the cloud, reducing the need to transfer all your data to the cloud based compute server everytime the compute server is started.
  • Includes (limited) scientific computing application support (e.g. basic compilation and code execution support) for running programs on the compute server
  • No resource sharing, you are the only user on your dedicated compute server.
  • The 64-bit HPC compute servers in Amazon EC2 can feature up to 8 CPU cores, 2 NVIDIA GPUs, over 1.5 TB of high-speed scratch storage, 10 Gbit Ethernet, and/or up to 20-60 GB of RAM, depending on your specific needs.

Key benefits increasing your bottom line:
  • No licensing, SW, OS, cloud setup, or driver compatibility issues, just start computing
  • Smart budgeting, avoid the costs of having your own internal HPC hardware and IT staffing
  • Amazon AWS based compute servers are custom-configured to your specific requirements, including software installation, and licensing configuration.
  • Cloud based computing is ideal for small academic institutions and small to medium size businesses with temporal HPC computing needs
  • Increase SW product quality by testing, benchmarking, and doing the QA of your release candidate on a powerful server under heavy 'real-life' loads.
  • On-demand resource, monthly billing based on actual usage
  • Pilvi-HPC is available either 1) as a turn-key service provided and hosted by Pilvi Computing, or 2) you can license the Pilvi-HPC SW tools and host Pilvi-HPC on your own internal servers for full control. The latter option also gives you access to all Pilvi-HPC source codes with possibility to modify the toolset to your specific needs.
