At its Winterstock event, Lenovo has unveiled Lenovo TruScale High Performance Computing as a Service (HPCaaS), delivering the power of supercomputing to organisations of all sizes through a cloud-like experience. The new high performance computing (HPC) as-a-service (aaS) offering expands Lenovo’s everything as-a-service TruScale portfolio and enables HPC customers to access greater supercomputing resources, driving a faster time to answer for researchers working on solving humanity’s greatest challenges.
Cloud-based HPC is the fastest growing
segment of high-performance computing, and on-demand resource consumption
provides more efficient and scalable computing resources to meet workload
requirements. The typical HPC cluster runs at nearly full capacity, with
rapidly increasing demands for compute and storage cycles and little room for
additional workloads. Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS delivers additional capacity
that allows research institutions to better compete for grants while gaining
faster insights. The technology provides rack-to-cloud level solutions that are
critical to drive innovation across multiple sectors, including academia,
pharma, manufacturing and healthcare.
“Lenovo TruScale HPC as a Service allows for incredible innovation with the flexibility for HPC customers to expand their clusters when needed,” says Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC at Lenovo. “We designed this offering to make high performance computing resources easier and faster to deploy, offering researchers the freedom to think bigger and without technology being a barrier to their success.”
New Possibilities with TruScale HPC as a
TruScale HPC as a Service maximises HPC
cluster resources and controls shared access through a simple, pay-per use
model that is managed and supported by Lenovo. With technology that is
installed right at the customer data center, HPC workload managers can
dynamically access and provision resources on-demand. Additional cluster
resources can be obtained through “push-button” access, which allows businesses
to utilise additional computing, storage and acceleration capabilities as
As a global leader in High Performance Computing, Lenovo is working closely with key industry partners to develop, integrate and deploy the technologies that deliver exascale-level computing to organisations of all sizes, or what Lenovo refers to as Exascale to Everyscale™. Whether its studying climate change under the arches of the Torre Girona in Barcelona or predicting weather patterns that protect coastal communities at North Carolina State University, Lenovo’s award-winning HPC solutions are helping researchers across the globe push the boundaries of what is possible and tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges. With the new Lenovo TruScale™ HPCaaS, any organisation can have immediate access to additional compute, storage and acceleration with more HPC resources available on-demand.
A practical and flexible approach to HPC
Lenovo TruScale offers organisations of all sizes the flexibility they need to stay competitive with scalable, end-to-end solutions with a cloud-like consumption model and predictable payment options for hardware and service. The simple, comprehensive platform enables organisations to maximise the return on investment and accelerate time to value. TruScale for HPC gives customers the flexibility to add provisioned resources rapidly, without being hindered by procurement delays or supply chain disruptions.
With Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS, customers have
extensive capabilities to scale their supercomputing requirements as needed.
- Pay for what they consume with no hidden costs
- Easily scale HPC clusters by removing resource limitations
- Run applications at scale without architectural bottlenecks
- Translate capital investments into operational expenses, avoiding long and intensive budget cycles and procurement delays
- Manage budgets and visualise consumption and billing through Lenovo’s TruScale Portal
- Access specialised hardware
Greater protection and security
Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS offers high levels of
control and security. The on-premises HPC capability provides seamless, protected
access to data without any changes to job scripts, or potential risks
associated with public cloud exposure. Lenovo’s dedicated professionals ensure
that data is secure from installation to utilisation and through
decommissioning. These capabilities are delivered in a highly cost-effective
offering, without any data egress or ingress charges associated with use.
Combined with the flexibility and agility TruScale has to offer, customers can
realise the full potential of their data.
