High Performance Computing

Add a Supercomputer to Your Cloud

Transform data into breakthroughs. Scale-out your compute resources by adding a high density server or cluster. A single HPC server can replace 50 CPU nodes.

Cloud Ready High Performance Compute IaaS and Hybrid Solutions

The performance and scalability of a world-class supercomputing center is now available to everyone, on demand in your cloud. Argon Systems offers high density servers for compute-intensive data analytics, deep learning and scientific applications.

High Performance Computing

Argon Systems offers high density servers for compute-intensive data analytics, deep learning and scientific applications. High Performance Computing (HPC) is a critical tool for advancing the pace of discovery and providing a competitive edge in scientific and industrial research.

Conventional architectures can no longer meet the growing demands for HPC. The industry has already begun migrating from the traditional CPU to the next generation of HPC. The GPU was designed for the fastest computational speeds and highest data throughputs. This gives us 100x more computing power on single chip, quadrupling the performance improvement predicted by Moore’s law.

HPC isn’t just for engineering and graphics. It’s becoming more commonplace, such as a big data analysis tool. Big data applications can include text analysis. Analyze billions of tweets, blogs, article and books to uncover patterns and linkages. Determine differences in meaning and interpretation across languages.
