Rescale - Announces Innovations to Accelerate Time to Results

SAN FRANCISCONov. 14, 2018 — Rescale, the leader in enterprise big compute in the cloud, today at Supercomputing 2018 announced the release of new high-performance computing (HPC) workflow capabilities: high-performance storage (HPS) and End-to-End desktops. With these tools, enterprises can now boost efficiency and enhance team collaboration.

“Rescale HPS gives users high performance access to shared data, and together with the new End-to-End desktop workflows, users are able to accelerate time to results for simulations in the cloud,” says Gabriel Broner, Vice President and General Manager, High Performance Computing at Rescale. “Our customers are looking forward to leveraging these new capabilities to achieve real-time interactive HPC.”

Key innovations include:

Rescale High Performance Storage (HPS) greatly improves simulation workflow efficiency and speed by providing fast access to recurring shared data (such as geometry, meshing and load scenario data, etc.). Furthermore, this high-speed persistent filestore can be shared across multiple concurrent users, clusters, or desktops.

End-to-End desktop workflows allow users to launch multi-node, high-core count jobs directly from the application software user interface (UI). This provides direct interactivity with the job, allowing pausing, modifying the mesh(es), and resuming, all directly from the application UI.

The advanced abilities of Rescale HPS and End-to-End desktop workflows give users a simpler transition to hybrid and cloud. Shared high performance storage is common on-premise and Rescale brings this capability to cloud workflows. For users who today run jobs in a workstation, End-to-End desktops enable them to continue a traditional workstation experience, while transparently leveraging hundreds of cores across powerful large clusters in the cloud.

“Rescale is continuing to lead the charge when taking enterprises into the future of high-performance computing in the cloud,” says Steve Conway, Hyperion Research. “With these new innovations, Rescale is providing users with enhanced performance, collaboration capabilities and the possibility to interact real-time with their simulations.”

San Francisco, CA, November 12, 2018Rescale, the leader in enterprise big compute in the cloud, today announced its launch into academia with their ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom products.

With ScaleX Pro for Students, students have the ability to receive free access up to 500 core hours on Rescale’s high performance computing (HPC) multi-cloud platform, access to over 300+ simulation and deep learning applications, and acceptance to Rescale’s academic partner programs and University competitions. ScaleX Pro for Classroom allows professors to have the enterprise group features at a fraction of the price. Professors can now control, monitor, and collaborate with students’ day to day engineering assignments.

“Engineering students are currently experiencing long project wait times and limitations to the number of simulation submissions to HPC at their university provisions,” says Gabriel Broner, Vice President and General Manager, High Performance Computing at Rescale. “Rescale’s ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom solve for today’s academia pain points by providing students with the ability to run projects immediately and unique access to different technology partner programs such as to cloud service providers.”

Universities may be limited today to accessing their on-premise systems. The Rescale platform enables students and researchers to submit jobs on-premise, across HPC centers, or to the public cloud, enabling to accelerate research by removing queues and utilizing the best architecture for each job. Rescale administration capabilities enable universities to use resources efficiently and manage budgets eliminating cost overruns.

“With Rescale’s ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom, our students can now instantly receive access to the latest hybrid cloud architecture and extensive Rescale software library and partner programs,” says Dr. Pritesh Narayan, Associate Head of Department, Engineering Design and Mathematics , University of West England, Bristol. “Not only are students able to execute design simulations with greater detail, but they are able to establish a more efficient and creative workflows.”
