UK cloud hosting provider Hyve Managed Hosting has launched a fully managed High Performance Computing (HPC) cloud solution with a fixed monthly billing option that is claimed to remove the complexity and cost concerns associated with traditional HPC deployments.
The solution allows customers to combine the power of an agile cloud environment and specialised hardware, including NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, to tailor their compute resources to the exact requirements of a particular project, with the reassurance of predictable bills at end of month.
Jon Lucas, Co-director of Hyve, said: “What makes Hyve different is that we can provide purpose-built infrastructure for very specific requirements at a much lower cost point than you would get on the public cloud. One customer told us that our quote for one month was the price they would pay for eight days on the public cloud! For businesses that have a large processing requirement over a set amount of time, we have an incredibly cost-effective solution.”
Jake Madders, Co-director of Hyve, added: “Towards the back end of last year, we saw a large uptick in the number of HPC requests from customers looking to move away from renting time on supercomputers or paying public cloud vendors astronomical prices for a very limited service. We made it our mission to design an HPC offering for 2021 that will transform the market by delivering a fully managed, cost-effective solution.”
