In the three years since AWS has hosted it’s re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, we’ve seen the Cloud HPC story go from being told by the early adopters that it really works, to last year’s record-breaking news around scale and performance with the MegaRun, to this year, where we’ll be demonstrating a massive shift in Cloud HPC adoption, and showcasing the tools and maturing ecosystem that are enabling it.
In only it’s third year as a conference, re:Invent 2014 is sold out, and is bringing more than 10,000 attendees to the Venetian and the Sands Convention Center. If you’re attending, make sure to see Cycle Computing booth #125 and learn how our One-click Cloud cluster containers is enabling Cloud HPC to help you achieve Better Answers, Faster.
The market is primed and moving fast – Cycle’s role in this is two-fold:
- Our software CycleServer, CycleCloud, and DataMan help users simply & securely conduct Cloud HPC. It’s never been easier than it is today with our One-click Cloud Cluster Containers, free Test Drives, and Cloud-ready Technical Computing Applications;
- By making it easier to try, and ultimately implement Cloud HPC for regular production workloads, we’re accelerating market adoption.
Below is what you can expect to experience with Cycle at re:Invent.
Cloud HPC Test Drives
Cycle Computing has launched a Cloud HPC Test Drive program to provide users with a hands-on experience that showcases the power and ease of using Cycle Computing software to connect and run common workloads in Life Sciences, Manufacturing, and general HPC, on AWS. We’ll be running two Cloud HPC Test Drives live in our booth at re:Invent. Test Drives can also be launched at www.cyclecomputing.com/aws-test-drives
The Cycle Computing Cloud HPC Test Drives work to provide a private IT sandbox environment on AWS where users will access the Cloud to experience how Cycle software fluidly connects to AWS. Test Drives are free for qualified users.
One-click Cloud Cluster Containers
See first hand through an old-school chalk board & art, how Cycle Computing software is the key enabler to Cluster Cloud Computing for HPC.
Learn from Users How Cycle is Enabling New Discoveries, and Faster Business
We’re honored to be invited to present in the Big Data & HPC track at re:Invent. Together with customers from HGST (a Western Digital company), and University of Southern California (USC), our CEO Jason Stowe will host a discussion that shows the range of solutions we’re enabling; from the small science lab that leveraged a record-breaking Cloud HPC run for research on organic solar cells, to how large enterprises are now optimizing on-demand clusters that accelerate R&D efforts by as much as 50 percent.
SESSION: BDT311 – MegaRun: Behind the 156,000 Core HPC Run on AWS and Experience of On-demand Clusters for Manufacturing Production Workloads
WHEN: Friday, Nov. 14
TIME: 10 a.m.
SPEAKERS: Jason Stowe, Cycle Computing, David Hinz, HGST, Patrick Saris, USC
A Maturing Ecosystem with 40+ Cloud-ready HPC Applications
The final preview for Cycle Computing at AWS re:Invent is the number of HPC & Technical Computing applications we have experience with and that are Cloud-ready. If you have a question as to if your specific workload or application works well on Cloud cluster computing – this is a perfect opportunity to talk with us and see for yourself.
We have a couple of other surprises up our sleeve. We hope to see you there!
