 Happy 2015 from Cycle Computing“We are in awe of the amazing things our customers accomplished 

with the Cloud in 2014 – you managed risk, designed better products, and fought disease. What an exciting year!

Thanks for letting us be a part of that. We look forward to making more rules with you in 2015!”


This is the message we sent out to customers & partners to welcome 2015. The New Year holiday is always a great time to reflect on what the past, and look forward to the future. We at Cycle Computing feel honored to be part of the work our customers are doing. When we look back, 2014 was indeed one to remember.

From the various Cloud computing records we’ve helped establish, to the great science and engineering work we help enable, it’s always important to remember that we never do it alone. In that spirit, I’ve included a few take-aways concepts, and below that some of the Cycle Computing highlights from 2014.

  1. Scientists and engineers are now getting better answers, faster – and this is transforming business operations. Getting streamlined, reliable access to cloud computing resources has enabled them to ask the right questions without being limited by the computing infrastructure they own in-house;
  2. Cycle Computing continues to break industry records for Cloud HPC scale, performance, and time to answer. But, the most important thing is the amazing work are customers are doing. From fighting cancer, to developing better products, to better business decision-making – we can’t help but be excited about how we’re helping improve the world; and
  3. Nothing great is ever accomplished alone. We’re humbled to be working with such amazing customers, and partners who continually are there with us as we push the envelope of what’s possible.

Finally, as you browse some of the headlines, blogs, videos, and photos, I hope you’ll be as excited as we are at Cycle Computing for what 2015 will bring. Cheers!
