In this video from GTC 2017, Jaan Mannik from One Stop Systems describes the company’s new HPC as a Service offering. As makers of high density GPU expansion chassis, One Stop Systems designs and manufactures high performance computing systems that revolutionize the data center by increasing speed to the Internet while reducing cost and impact to the infrastructure.

“Our high density compute accelerators connect directly to the servers’ PCIe bus, delivering up to 139.8 Tflops of compute performance to one to four servers in a 1U, 2U or 3U chassis. Our Flash Storage Arrays support up to 200TB of fast storage and also can be accessed by up to four servers. These fast storage appliances deliver up to 16 million IOPS in a 3U external system. It would take approximately seven of today’s high-end 1U/2U servers to match that kind of performance, requiring up to 14U of rack space. It’s immediately apparent that the economics and the space requirements lean heavily to external systems.”

At the conference, One Stop’s partner SkyScale announced the launch of its world-class, ultra-fast multi-GPU hardware platforms in the cloud, available for lease to customers desiring the fastest performance available as a service anywhere on the globe.

Employing OSS compute and flash storage systems gives SkyScale customers the overwhelming competitive advantage in the cloud they have been asking for,” said Tim Miller, President of SkyScale. “The systems we deploy at SkyScale in the cloud are identical to the hundreds of systems in the field and in the sky, trusted in the most rigorous defense, space, and medical deployments with cutting-edge, rock-solid performance, stability, and reliability. By making these systems accessible on a time-rental basis, developers have the advantage of using the most sophisticated systems available to run their algorithms without having to own them, and they can scale up or down as needs change. SkyScale is the only service that gives customers the opportunity to lease time on these costly systems, saving time-to-deployment and money.”
