flyelephantToday FlyElephant announced a collaboration with HPC HUB, a developer of complex software and hardware solutions in high performance computing. Now entering its second year, FlyElephant is a platform for data scientists, engineers and researchers that accelerates their work and improves their business by automating data science and engineering simulation tasks.

During this past year, the FlyElephant system has been used by more than 1000 users, which allowed us to collect a large amount of feedback and to understand how to improve the platform in the future,” said FlyElephant CEO Dmitry Spodarets. “This community is an integral part of the platform, which consists of partner companies and individual experts who are ready to help in solving complex tasks. Together we are building new solutions based on FlyElephant platform and invite everyone to join us.”

Thanks to the support from Microsoft and Amazon with the programs BizSpark Plus and AWS Activate, as well as the cooperation with the data center UNIT-IS and cluster SCIT, we were able to build a platform which can work with different computing resources and automate tasks. The platform supports the public clouds Azure and AWS, HPC-clusters based on SLURM and Docker-clusters based on Swarm. We’ve already integrated more than 30 different languages and tools into FlyElephant, and their number is constantly growing.

The current HPC HUB`s products are based on complete and container systems virtualization, the resource management system OpenStack, the distributed storage Ceph and the clustered file system GFS2.

The HPC HUB collaboration will give the FlyElephant platform new computing resources and a connection to three new clusters:

  • HPC HUB 1: 80 nodes (2 × Xeon E5-2680v2 (20 cores), 64GB RAM, IB FDR) and 240TB storage.
  • HPC HUB 2: 100 nodes (2 × Xeon E5-2670v2 (20 cores), 256GB RAM, IB FDR) and 240TB storage.
  • HPC HUB 3: 150 nodes (2 × Xeon E5-2650v2 (16 cores), 128GB RAM, 2 × Tesla K80, IB FDR) and 240TB storage.

On Nov. 10 at HP-CAST, FlyElephant CEO Dmitry Spodarets will present “FlyElephant for Data Science Tasks, Simulation Engineering and Rendering.
