How Much Should a Teraflop Cost?

Leo Reiter

“Why not pay only for what you need, when you need it? Using our JARVICE supercomputer, we can deliver 120 teraFLOPS for less than $200 per hour. The same electromagnetic simulation costing close to $600 on the ManeFrame (in slice of CAPEX cost alone) can be yours for only $156 total on the Nimbix cloud. And unlike the ManeFrame, it shuts off automatically when it’s done, so you don’t keep paying even when it’s idle. The $156 includes space, cooling, power, and humans to help make sure it runs smoothly as well. Don’t forget that you can’t just “slice off” $600 of ManeFrame – you still have to invest $6.5 million, plus the operating costs. With JARVICE, the $156 is the total amount you pay for the example job with no other strings attached.”
