While we’re always on the lookout for HPC news, not everything makes it to the front page. Notable items from this week include big boosts for Apache Spark, Containerization, and Lustre.
The Fastway Store on the UberCloud Marketplace is designed to provide exclusive training classes specifically designed to teach participants how to use the latest Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software on the cloud for Designers and Design Engineers. “Never before has a more complete curriculum been created to bring newcomers into the world of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and High Performance Computing.” says Fastway Engineering’s managing director, Jim Shaw.
“After 18 months of developing Docker container technology into high performance application containers for engineering and scientific simulations, UberCloud announces the availability of high performance application containers on its online UberCloud Marketplace, for ANSYS Mechanical, Fluent, CFX, Workbench, Icepak, EM, LS-DYNA and LS-PrePost, for CD-adapco STAR-CCM+, and for OpenFOAM, and more in the pipeline. These application containers are portable on all in-house and cloud environments and allow seamless and transparent on-demand access to and use of applications and data in the cloud, with a look and feel identical to your workstation.”
“Ready for Computing as a Service, for your professional simulation projects? Need computing resources, storage capacity and expert consulting? The UberCloud Marketplace is your one-stop-shop to get access to these resources, on-demand, when you need them. To learn more read the UberCloud Marketplace announcement. And if you are ready, tell us about your project today; to receive quotes from our service providers.”
In this video, Burak Yenier from the HPC Experiment describes the new UberCloud Marketplace. As a One-Stop-Shop for HPC as a Service, the Marketplace is a place where engineers and scientists can discover, try and buy the computing power and expertise on demand they need for their computational and data-intensive tasks.
