“For this big workload, a 156,314-core CycleCloud behemoth spanning 8 AWS regions, totaling 1.21 petaFLOPS (RPeak, not RMax) of aggregate compute power, to simulate 205,000 materials, crunched 264 compute years in only 18 hours. Thanks to Cycle’s software and Amazon’s Spot Instances, a supercomputing environment worth $68M if you had bought it, ran 2.3 Million hours of material science, approximately 264 compute-years, of simulation in only 18 hours, cost only $33,000, or $0.16 per molecule.
