We have a very exciting webinar coming up this Thursday, Dec. 12, where we have a great user speaker, and real customer use cases that will overview Cloud Computing & Utility HPC and how to accelerate Manufacturing Design. In the one-hour webinar, we’ll review how Cloud computing and Utility HPC is being used today as a competitive advantage with CAD/CAM and electronic design automation (EDA), with the ability to spin up clusters running common industry applications. Real-world manufacturing use cases will be discussed, and we’re honored to have Cycle Computing customer from HGST, a Western Digital Company, overview his experience using HPC in the Cloud.
We’ll also be showcasing details on our Record-breaking MegaRun – the 156,000+ core run we received so much publicity for back in November.

This webinar follows a busy November for Cycle Computing! Two of the biggest events of the year for Cloud computing and Utility HPC were held back to back: AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, and then SC13 in Denver.
One of the highlights of these events was the first PetaFLOPS-scale cloud cluster, our record-setting MegaRun Cloud computing run – a Utility HPC milestone – and the World’s Largest and Fastest Cloud Computing Run. This run was highlighted in AWS CTO Dr. Werner Vogels’ Keynote Address.
Below are some details:
- Cutting-edge Clean Energy Research thanks to Schrödinger Materials Science tools (https://www.schrodinger.com/materials/)
- Simulated ~205,000 organic semiconductors to determine efficiency as solar materials
- 156,000+ cores
- Measured at 1.21 PetaFLOPS peak throughput (not RMax)
- 264 years of computing in 18 hours
- World wide cloud run: Across all eight AWS regions (over five continents)
- Rather than spending $68 Million to buy this system, workload completed for $33,000
** Important: Although most of our customers use us for 40-4,000 cores, we were happy to announce a new large scale run that illustrates our ability to have secure, production workloads from modest to immense scales.
