At virtual ISC 2021, we sat down with supercomputing-as-a-service company XTREME-D, a venture-backed company founded in 2015 with the goal of making HPC cloud computing access easy, fast, efficient and economical.

The company’s leadership team has 25 years of experience in HPC and cloud technologies, and two of them, Naoki Shibata (CEO/Chief HPC IaaS Architect) and Dr. David Barkai (Technical Advisor), updated us on the company’s as-a-service offerings, on larger trends driving cloud HPC and on the company’s plans to expand its presence in the U.S. market.

“We see a great synergy between what XTREME-D’s vision and action is and the needs of the markets in the U.S. and Europe,” Barkai told us.

“At the heart of XTREME-D’s platform is simple and supported access to cloud-based HPC configurations that applies very well to trying to democratize access to cloud computing for people who do not have in house expertise on HPC. Secondly us support of multiple platforms seamlessly, which really correspond to the market … where customers can shop around when various providers and moving between on premises and public cloud applications is needed. So there is a supporting for bursting in the hybrid computing. And the third point … is to offer not just compute intensive capabilities but also data analytics in an AI-based configuration, which is really what the user community is looking for these days.”
