Cloud Computing Accelerates Design
Cloud technologies offer a processing power alternative.
Hype aside, the cloud has made a significant impact on business operations. Today’s businesses rely on cloud services for a multitude of IT functions -- ranging from storage to unified communications to hosted applications, with no end in sight.
Major cloud services vendors, such as Amazon, Google and HP, are offering advanced services that scale up to data center capabilities, with support for massive computational loads. What’s more, niche vendors, such as Altair's PBS Works
and PEER1 Hosting, are focusing on high-performance computing (HPC) as a service
, bringing new capabilities to a market that is poised for explosive growth.
Let’s take a look at some of the options available, and how those offerings can be transformed into replacements or reinforcements for onsite HPC needs.
