Sabalcore Cloud is built for OpenFOAM

Sabalcore uses same HPC technology found in modern supercomputers including Nvidia/Mellanox® Quantum™ InfiniBand fabrics with ultra low latency and up to 200Gbps throughput between compute nodes. Sabalcore systems are “bare-metal”. Nothing is virtualized. Bare-metal provides the highest processing efficiency and scalability for your most demanding simulations. Typical cloud providers use virtual CPUs enabled by hyperthreading by default which significantly decreases performance which impacts your simulation time. Sabalcore dedicates a full CPU core for each process thread which improves simulation time and cost.

Applications which use MPI, such as OpenFOAM, rely heavily on distributing the domain process across many compute nodes in order to reduce the wall-time necessary to complete the simulation. Or to run a more fine-grained mesh for more accurate results. Therefore, the network connection between the nodes is critical to the performance, scalability, and reliability of the process. Sabalcore utilizes the Nvidia Quantum Infiniband network platform which provides the ultra-low latency, full-bandwidth, connectivity between compute nodes necessary for parallel performance.

  • Bare-metal compute nodes running Linux OS for highest available performance per CPU cycle; better than vCPUs
  • OpenFOAM pre installed, we build and isntall for you, or you install it yourself. Compilers are available for self builds and installs.
  • Bare-metal compute nodes with speeds up to 3.6Ghz and 382GB RAM
  • Scale simulations to hundreds of CPU cores. Or un multiple simulations simultaneously.
  • Up to 200Gbps NVIDA Infiniband HDR network between compute nodes. The best performance for MPI applications like OpenFOAM
  • High performance parallel file system for fast data reads and writes
  • Download data quickly with Sabalcore proprietary file transfer client – Global File transfer (GFT)
