Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel® OPA) With Intel® Xeon® Processers Deliver Exceptional Bare-Metal Performance For HPC Cloud Services With Penguin Computing On Demand

Penguin Computing has been providing HPC clusters for years to many customers. Today they are building some of the largest, fastest, and most sophisticated systems in the world—from the first Commodity Technology Systems (CTS-1) at the Tri-Labs (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratory) to clusters at commercial enterprises in oil and gas, life sciences, and engineering, to name a few. “When we looked at HPC in the cloud,” commented Victor Gregorio, SVP of Cloud Services at Penguin Computing, “we decided that, with our partner solution offerings, professional services, and general breadth of expertise in the industry, we were in an ideal position to create an on-demand cloud environment for HPC workloads.” Since its launch over eight years ago, Penguin Computing on Demand (POD) has grown in customer use and demand, driving expansion of the clusters in the POD service.
