Instant Gratification Takes Too Long and Costs Too Much for HPC. Or Does It?

In this special guest post, Peter ffoulkes writes that automation software from companies like XTREME-D are making HPC datacenters more productive every day. “One such example of these capabilities comes from startup XTREME-D, which provides a simple point-and-click user interface based on HPC workload templates and the XTREME-Stargate cluster portal, which acts as a “super head node” to provide simple access to virtual cluster resources.”

XTREME-Stargate Launches “New era of Cloud Platform for AI and HPC”

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.”

Choosing the Right Type of Cloud for HPC Lets Scientists Focus on Science

Naoki Shibata from XTREME-D writes that choosing the right type of cloud computing is key to increasing efficiency. “One challenge that HPC, DA, and DL end users face is to keep focused on their science and engineering and not get bogged down with system administration and platform details when ensuring that they have the clusters they need for their work. It has often been said that if scalable cluster computing can become more turnkey and user-friendly (and less costly), then the market will expand to many new areas.”

Point and Click HPC: The XTREME-Stargate laaS Platform

XTREME-D’s next step in offering seamless HPC/DA/DL computing is the XTREME-Stargate gateway platform, or cluster portal. This on-prem device acts as a cluster “head node” and provides secure and fast access to bare-metal clusters that are configured using enhanced XTREME-DNA technology.

Xtreme-D Showcases Innovative Solutions for Managing HPC Clouds at ISC 2018

In this video from ISC 2018 in Frankfurt, Naoki Shibata from Xtreme-D describes the company’s the company’s innovative solutions for deploying and managing HPC clouds. “Customers can use our easy-to-deploy turnkey HPC cluster system on public cloud, including setup of HPC middleware (OpenHPC-based packages), configuration of SLURM, OpenMPI, and OSS HPC applications such as OpenFOAM. The user can start the HPC cluster (submitting jobs) within 10 minutes on the public cloud.”

Video: Xtreme Stargate Launches at ISC 2018

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 appliance will deliver an entirely new HPC cloud experience via a robust UI/UX.

XTREME-D Debuts Revolutionary IaaS for Accessing HPC in the Cloud via Gateway Appliance

Today HPC cloud company XTREME-D announced a prototype version of 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 appliance will deliver an entirely new HPC cloud experience via a robust UI/UX. It also offers non- traditional billing systems that charge based on job rather than on time consumed, as is typical for SaaS or IaaS.

XTREME-D to Launch Gateway Appliance for Secure HPC Cloud Access

“XTREME-Stargate is a small set-top linux appliance that can easily connect to HPC cloud with basic setup over a web portal using the XTREME-DNA interface. It functions as a “super head node” for HPC cloud clusters, providing access to on-premise, private, and public cloud without integration headaches, and allowing connections to baremetal cloud (either shared or dedicated), in addition to the public cloud vendors such as Azure and AWS that have always been accessible via XTREME-DNA.”
