- Secure Client with remote graphics for native GUIs
- Complete development environment available for compiling and building your own code
- Fully managed environment. We take care of everything so you can focus on the work at hand
High Performance Network
Sabalcore compute clusters employ the fastest Infinband FDR fabrics to provide fast, reliable, and scalable data communication between compute nodes. Infiniband provides the best network for parallel execution.
High Performance Compute Nodes
Choose from the latest Intel nodes up to 16 cores running at an average clock speed of 3.0Ghz and up to 8GB of RAM per core. We have a variety of compute nodes to choose from including graphics nodes for remote visualization.
Complete Development Environment
Installation of your software is included. However, 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, OpenMP, mvapich2, OpenMPI and many more. Building code is easy. Most of the popular libraries are already installed and available. Simply reserve a compute node, choose and load the version of the system libraries you require, and start building and compiling. As an option, we can also build and tune your codes using Intel or Portland compilers. Contact us for more details.
Secure Access From Anywhere
Sabalcore has developed a robust full-featured secure client (ssClient) which provides both command-line and graphical interfaces to the service. However, customers can access the service using any secure shell (SSH) client. All data in transfer, including graphics and remote desktop, is encrypted. Customer’s have the option to use secure key-pair authentication.
