ACTnowHPC provides on-demand cloud high performance computing that gives you the freedom to scale a solution to fit your changing computational needs. When you use our cloud, you get:
- Compute nodes are based on our Pinnacle Flex 1FX3601 hardware. You get 2x 10-core Intel Xeon E5-2650 v3 (Haswell) processors per node, with well over 1,000 cores to run the most demanding of jobs.
- ￼￼￼￼Bare metal compute nodes (no virtualization performance penalties) 64 GB of 2133MHz DDR4 memory (more than 3GB per core)
- High-speed low-latency 56Gb/s FDR InfiniBand network between all nodes
- Your own dedicated storage volumes, placed on our high-performance storage servers and
connected via both FDR InfiniBand and 40Gb Ethernet
- GPU node with 2x K80s to run codes that can take advantage of this acceleration
- Advanced Clustering’s software stack (pre-installed)
- Support from our HPC engineers
- Third party apps can be pre-installed if provided to us*
- 100 GB free storage and no fees for transferring data back and forth**
* OpenFOAM, STAR-CCM+, WRF are already installed. Commercial applications require a license to be provided.
** If more than 100 GB of storage is needed, it’s a minimal cost to expand. See HPC Cloud Pricing (page 6) for more details.
