In this video, Vinay Kumar from Oracle describes how the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers high performance for HPC applications.

High Performance Computing changes the economics of product development and research. It requires fewer prototypes, accelerates testing, and decreases time to market. Oracle offers on-demand HPC infrastructure, suitable for any HPC workload, based on the most advanced compute, storage, networking, and software technologies—at a fraction of the cost of building it yourself.”

Highlights include:

  • Compute instances with the latest NVIDIA GPUs and Intel Skylake processors, including high core count and high frequency options
  • Up to 51.2 TB local NVMe storage per compute instance
  • 2 x 25 Gbps network interfaces – or 1 x 25 Gbps and 1 x 100 Gbps for RDMA
  • Bare metal compute instances for the utmost control of, and performance from, your hardware
  • Block storage volumes up to 1 PB
  • Software frameworks for rendering, scientific, manufacturing, design, AI, machine learning, and more
