At its recently concluded Winterstock event, Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) 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-level resources that are critical to drive innovation across multiple sectors, including academia, pharma, manufacturing and healthcare.
Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC at Lenovo, said: “Lenovo’s TruScale HPC as a Service allows for incredible innovation with the flexibility for HPC customers to expand their clusters when needed.”
“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 Service
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 centre, 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 utilize additional computing, storage and acceleration capabilities as needed.
A practical and flexible approach to HPC
Lenovo TruScale offers organisations of all sizes the flexibility they need to stay competitive with a scalable, cloud-like consumption model and predictable payment options for hardware and service inclusions, maximising the return on investment and accelerating 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.
Greater protection and security
Lenovo TruScale 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 while doing so on their own terms.
