Drive Dynamic Scientific Research with Red Hat OpenStack Platform: The flexible, scalable private cloud solution
Years ago supercomputing was only available to governments, large universities and scientists. It was a system that was complex and required a custom hardware that most companies could not afford. It also required a niche system that average organizations couldn’t access due to cost, size and availability. Now, high-performance computing (HPC) uses parallel processing that allows organizations of all sizes to run advanced application programs efficiently, reliably and quickly. This makes the power of the supercomputer available to everyone. HPC provides an affordable commodity hardware, more OS choices and scalable computing via software-defined networking infrastructure and virtualization. Companies want to know what their HPC solution is. Red Hat’s OpenStack platform is a highly scalable, production-ready IaaS solution that is built on the tested, secure foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Built by Red Hat’s award-winning enterprise support, it provides the HPC scientists what they need to support innovative research. Companies like Wellcome Trust Sanger, Penn State, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory used Red Hat’s OpenStack platform to increase research productivity, develop new business opportunities and power data-intensive workloads.
