Penguin Computing has reached several new acheivements with its Penguin Computing On-Demand (POD) high-performance computing (HPC) cloud service. Among them include a 50% increase in capacity and plans to double the total capacity in Q1 2017. These plans are to include the new Intel Xeon processors and Omni-Path architecture.
The company also introduced Scyld Cloud Desktop, a non-GPU (graphics processing unit) accelerated version of Scyld Cloud Workstation. The company will provide these desktops at no additional cost as a replacement for its free login nodes, giving all POD users access to a Linux desktop connected to the cluster fabric.
“Rapid demand for and growth in our POD business reflects the significant benefits customers are experiencing, particularly since we announced availability of the OCP-compliant Tundra platform on POD late last year,” said Tom Coull, president and CEO, Penguin Computing. “With the Tundra platform, our customers have greater capacity due to faster scaling combined with increased performance and streamlined costs. Tundra on POD also highlights the growth and maturing market role of open computing, with thousands of high-speed, cost-efficient cores available to meet customers’ needs for faster, easier deployment of capacity at a low cost.”
