Xtreme Stargate

Today HPC Cloud Startup XTREME-D announced the official release of XTREME-Stargate, a gateway appliance that delivers a new way to access and manage high-performance cloud for the next AI generation.

XTREME-Stargate is an innovative next-generation HPC cloud platform from a start-up focused on HPC cloud offerings. It provides high performance computing and graphics processing and is cost effective for both simulation and data analysis.

XTREME-Stargate uses the latest Intel-based HPC hardware components (servers, interconnect, software). The main components of XTREME-Stargate are as follows:

  • XTREME-Stargate IaaS. Developed as a cloud-based bare-metal appliance specifically for high-performance computations, optimized for AI data analysis and conventional supercomputer usage. The design includes Intel CPUs, high-speed SSD, and high speed and low latency interconnect. The first implementation in Japan is done with the cooperation of Sakura Internet Co., Ltd as a datacenter partner.
  • XTREME-Stargate Dashboard + HPC Templates. The front-end system seamlessly connects XTREME-Stargate IaaS and data I/O to users to enable the necessary HPC cloud services to be instantly deployed when needed. With advanced UI / UX, user management, and budget management functions, enterprise users can easily manage and operate their needed workloads. In addition, a number of HPC templates can be instantly created and enable AI data analysis environments to instantly deploy dedicated HPC cloud services. This technology is uniquely designed with HPC and AI workloads in mind, speeding implementation for both on-prem and cloud environments.
  • XTREME-Stargate HPC Gateway (target availability date is April 2019). The XTREME-Stargate HPC Gateway appliance connects the customer site and cloud data center. It also enables secure data transfer. Early adopters can add this pre-release feature to their environment.
  • XTREME-Stargate Secure Data I/O. XTREME-Stargate Secure Data I/O (target availability date is March 2019) XTREME-Stargate Secure Data I/O is a dedicated multi-layered storage system implemented using the latest SSD technology and parallel file system enabling performance and ease of use. It supports high performance functions for AI workloads where large data analysis is essential and high-speed I/O required.

In this video from ISC 2018 in Frankfurt, Naoki Shibata from Xtreme-D demonstrates XTREME-Stargate, a solution that combines Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and an HPC gateway appliance to deliver a new way to access and manage high performance cloud.


The XTREME-Stargate PoC program has been tested with several early adopters. The public services will start at the end of 2018 in Japan, collaborating with Sakura Internet as the major Japanese-focused HPC and Data Center provider. Sakura will offer data center facility and technical support.
