Designed for the User
Three principles guide our system design - First, a superb computing environment with fast, reliable and consistent performance. Second, customers deserve support and tools which make it simple to leverage the high performance computing environment. Third, a fully managed environment. We take care of everything so you can focus on the work at hand.
Key System Features
- Purpose-built HPC systems – bare-metal CPUs deliver the best performance (no virtual CPUs)
- Infiniband network (tightly-coupled) for Parallel execution
- Direct-attached High Performance Parallel file system for top I/O performance
- Remote graphics for native GUIs and Visualization
- Fully managed environment. We take care of everything so you can focus on the work at hand
Native Client for Visualization and Secure Access
Sabalcore has developed a robust full-featured secure client (ssClient) which runs independent of the browser. This enables better efficiency and streamlines work-flows for the user. There are no browser pages and web page forms slowing down productivity. Work sessions are automatically saved and can be picked-up instantly after logging back in. 3-D graphics are accelerated by nVidia Quadro graphics cards. All data, including graphic streams, are encrypted.
High Performance Network
Sabalcore compute clusters employ fast Infinband fabrics for reliable and scalable data communication between compute nodes. Infiniband provides the best network for parallel execution and is many times faster than Ethernet. Unlike AWS and Azure clouds, Sabalcore’ Infiniband is not segmented into virtual lanes. Instead, you get the entire bandwidth provided by the Sabalcore’s network.
High Performance Compute Nodes
Choose from the latest multi-core Intel processors with ample RAM per core. We have a variety of compute nodes with dual multi-core CPUs to choose from. All bare-metal. There’s no virtual CPUs at Sabalcore. You get 100% of the available performance from the CPU.
Fully Managed Environment
Our service includes a fully managed environment. We have over 200 pre-installed and optimized software packages and libraries. We take care of everything so you can focus on the work at hand. If your software is not on the list, we will install it for you. This service is included.
For those power-user customers who wish to compile their own codes, a complete suite of updated open-source software libraries and compilers are available. Including C, C++, FORTRAN, Java, Python, OpenMP, mvapich2, OpenMPI and many more. Building code is easy. Most of the popular libraries are already installed and available. As an option, we can also build and tune your codes using Intel or Portland compilers. Contact us for more details.
