White Paper: Basement Supercomputer beats Amazon EC2 on Cost and Performance

The good folks at Basement Supercomputing have published a white paper comparing one of the company’s on-prem Limulus personal HPC appliance to Amazon EC2 Cloud instances. The economics are quite interesting. “In this careful study equivalent EC2 cluster instances were configured using current pricing (Spring 2019). A comparison of Basement Supercomputing Limulus appliance workstations with the Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) is presented. The capabilities of both approaches are discussed along with a detailed comparison of two Limulus appliance designs.”
