Rescale has selected IBM Cloud as a preferred cloud computing provider, expanding its HPC (high-performance computing) network. By running Rescale’s simulation and deep learning platform on the IBM Cloud, engineers, data scientists, CIOs, and IT professionals gain greater global reach, flexibility, and performance for their data and graphics-intensive workloads, the company states.
According to a press release, companies can now select IBM’s bare metal cloud servers enabled with the latest NVIDIA GPU (computational fluid dynamics) capabilities to meet the technical and performance requirements of applications in data mining, machine learning and simulation. IBM’s GPU-enabled servers can be spun up on an hourly basis, giving companies granular control and scalability over their private, public or hybrid cloud environments. In addition to the latest x86 processors, NVIDIA GPU accelerators, Rescale plans to extend its support to IBM POWER-based server capabilities in 2017.
“Most of the IT innovation that is happening today is with a cloud-first model,” said Joris Poort, co-founder and CEO of Rescale. “We’re building a platform that can satisfy and accelerate the ideas of the world’s top scientists and thinkers. From automotive design to drug discovery and even actual rocket science, we’re empowering our customers as leaders in their respective fields, to accomplish more and innovation faster.”
