13 July 2021 - NxtGen, a leading Cloud Technologies and Datacenter provider in India with existing Enterprise Cloud Services (ECS) operations today launched SpeedCloudTM High Performance Computing as a Service (HPCaaS) for global markets. Fueled by best-in-class technology from global leaders like HPE and Intel, SpeedCloudTM HPCaaS is NxtGen’s endeavor to simplify, strengthen and accelerate mainstream adoption of high-performance computing by enterprises, research institutes, and government entities.
Modern application workloads involved in advanced scientific, engineering, and technology domains are complex and demand next-level performance, power, and accuracy for problem-solving on large datasets at very high speed and scale. The ability to process data at scale and perform complex task calculations at high speed is what HPC is all about. The most common users of HPC systems are scientific researchers, engineers, governments, and academic institutions, as well as businesses performing data-centric computing projects in AI and other areas. NxtGen’s SpeedCloudTM HPCaaS, built with know-how and collaboration from HPE-Cray and Intel is already being used by some of the premier technology institutions across India.
SpeedCloudTM HPC Cluster is powered by HPC-Cray and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 family of processors, featuring Intel Deep Learning Boost for unmatched 2-socket performance leadership across popular workloads. Built to support both liquid-cooled and air-cooled options, the HPE Apollo 20 System takes advantage of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise experience in HPC cooling technologies as workloads continue to push power and density. The cluster houses high-speed InfiniBand EDR interconnects and for efficiently handling large datasets for your simulations, data analytics, and innovative AI/ML emerging technology workloads.
Commenting on the launch, A S Rajgopal, CEO & MD, NxtGen said “Not long ago, high performance computing use cases came solely from the rarefied realm of research, government and the largest corporations. SpeedCloud™ HPCaaS makes it possible for mainstream enterprises to leverage these technologies for manufacturing excellence, healthcare, financial services, etc. We were encouraged by our customers’ eagerness to accelerate experimentation and innovation.”
“Today, some of the world’s most important innovations depend on high performance computing (HPC). From climate research to finance, cloud to AI, Intel’s comprehensive portfolio of HPC products delivers unmatched performance for a wide range of real-world applications. Fueled by the Intel Xeon Scalable platform with built-in AI acceleration SpeedCloud brings cloud-based high performance compute infrastructure to researchers, businesses and academia, enabling them to rapidly scale computing capabilities to solve complex challenges and power new discoveries across industries,” said Prakash Mallya, VP & MD – Sales, Marketing & Communications Group, Intel India.
Commenting on the launch, Som Satsangi, Managing Director, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India said “With growing data sizes, computational models are becoming more realistic and complex which has resulted in increased demand for High Performance Computing (HPC). The cost of entry has always been a barrier to applying HPC to a broader range of business applications. With HPC delivered as a service, computational power can reach out and touch all aspects of the business process.
HPE is strongly committed to providing end customers the as-a-service solutions they need. Whether through our own HPE GreenLake services suite or through a market-leading partner, HPE is bringing the right cloud offerings to customers – with the right levels of expertise – wherever the customer needs. HPE is excited to partner with NxtGen and Intel in making HPC available for academic researchers, data-scientists and midsize and large organizations.”
