Convey Computer announced today it is partnering with HPC cloud innovator, Nimbix, to deliver Convey’s unique hybrid-core architecture and bioinformatics personalities as a cloud-based HPC solution. Nimbix, a new Convey customer, will deploy hybrid-core systems to accelerate informatics and discovery applications. Convey has multiple solutions for big data—most notably in bioinformatics and genome research. Convey personalities accelerate applications such as genome sequencing and alignment, giving researchers the ability to solve problems they previously could not. Because Convey’s FPGA-based systems feature an adaptable architecture, customers are creating new personalities every day to attack specific problems they face.
Unlike other cloud infrastructure providers, Nimbix manages accelerated server platforms to speed up data processing for computationally intensive applications, such as bioinformatics, financial analytics, and graphics. In 2010, Nimbix announced its Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud, which puts efficient hardware technology, optimized for industry-specific applications, in the hands of customers wanting to solve big data challenges. Nimbix also is expanding its private cloud HPC clusters for customers who prefer dedicated environments for
With our cloud solutions, customers can leverage multiple accelerator technologies, including Convey’s hybrid-core servers, for big data applications. We lower the barrier of access to the ‘new HPC’ via the cloud and deliver a more efficient and productive path to results,” said Steve Hebert, co-founder of Nimbix.
