High Performance Compute

There are many features and benefits to adopting High Performance Compute, including being highly scalable for throughput computing and optimised for massively parallel processing (MPP) and grid engines.

The inherent scale and elasticity of cloud makes it an ideal environment for large-scale compute-intensive workloads such as Grid Engines, High Performance/Throughput Compute (HPC/HTC) and Massively Parallel Processing (MPP), some of which has an enduring requirement for large amounts of processor cores and memory.

Our High Performance Compute service is designed for these types of workloads. In return for a volume and term commitment for a large number of compute cores, customers get a cost-effective, highly scalable infrastructure to support their compute intensive Solution.
