The Intel Xeon Phi processor is a bootable host processor that delivers massive parallelism and vectorization to support the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The joint Cloud solution also features Intel Omni-Path Fabric to deliver fast, low-latency performance. R Systems hosts Intel's technology at their remote HPC data centres in Champaign, Illinois, providing white-glove implementation and maintenance to make Intel's hardware seamlessly accessible on the Cloud through Rescale. "This is another example how R Systems is committed in offering leading edge, bare metal technology to the HPC research community through its partnerships with Rescale and Intel", added Brian Kucic, R Systems Principal.
These impressive HPC capabilities are available at no charge to users for four weeks through Rescale's Cloud platform for big compute, ScaleX Pro. ScaleX Pro provides users with an intuitive GUI for job execution - including pre- and post-processing - and seamless collaboration with peers, backed by best-in-class security protocols and certifications including annual SOC 2 Type 2 Certification and ITAR- and EAR-compliant infrastructure. ScaleX Labs users will also receive beta access to ScaleX Developer, Rescale's product that allows software developers to create, publish, and run their own software on the ScaleX platform. Developing and deploying software to the Cloud on Rescale is easy and seamless on ScaleX Developer, which follows the same GUI workflow as Rescale's other ScaleX products and requires no special knowledge about how Rescale works.
"We are proud to provide a remote access platform for Intel's latest processors and interconnect, and appreciate the committed cooperation of our partners at R Systems", stated Rescale CEO Joris Poort. "Our customers care about both performance and convenience, and the ScaleX Labs with Intel Xeon Phi processors brings them both in a single Cloud HPC solution at a price point that works for everyone."
"Intel is investing to offer a balanced portfolio of products for high-performance computing, including our leading Intel Xeon Phi processors and low-latency Intel Omni-Path Architecture", stated Barry Davis, General Manager, Accelerated Workload Group, Intel. "With increasing adoption of HPC applications to drive discovery and innovation, the ScaleX Labs with Intel Xeon Phi processors provides customers the opportunity to access high-performance compute capability in the Cloud."
