PRESS RELEASE

Cloud-based HPC servers

Time intensive calculations from life science, finance or business intelligence can now be processed in the Cloud with a platform from cloudnumbers.com. The intuitive platform provides the ability to run time consuming calculations on clusters with more than 1,000 CPUs.

'So far, high performance computing has only been accessible for large corporations and universities leading to significant competitive disadvantages for small and medium sized companies. With cloudnumbers.com we finally make high performance computing accessible to everyone,' commented Moritz von Petersdorff-Campen, managing director of cloudnumbers.com.

Cloudnumbers.com's scalable server environment results in minimal idle times and cost savings, as customers only pay for what they actually consume. Furthermore, users no longer need a degree in computer science to be able to access the computing power of supercomputers.
