New HPC Capabilities for the Enterprise – CEO Looks Forward to 2015

blog

Looking forward to 2015, we have some exciting new updates in the works here at Rescale.  Primarily based on customer feedback and alignment with our long term roadmap, you can expect some major updates in the following areas:

New Hardware & Lower Prices

We already have a great selection of hardware configurations at various competitive price points.  That said, one of the big benefits of being a Rescale customer is that you can take advantage of the new hardware technologies and reduced pricing as older configurations depreciate.  Very soon, we will be launching the newest Intel Haswell processors on Rescale which should provide up to 20% performance improvements for a typical simulation.  As we have consistently done in the past, we will continue to reduce prices as older hardware depreciates and pass the cost savings along to our customers.  Price sensitive users will also benefit from increased capacity of our Low Priority pool.

Expanded Network of Data Centers

As our international customers know well, we already have data centers in Asia and Europe.  With continued growth in these new regions, so does the requirement for certain companies to have their data reside locally in their specific region.  We are continuing to partner and build out capacity in new data centers to complement the existing 20+ locations we already have available today.

Enhanced Functionality for Developers

Just in the past few days, we’ve opened up our API and CLI to the public as the Rescale toolbelt for developers.  These exciting new tools make it possible for any engineer or developer to programmatically access the Rescale platform.  Now anyone can deeply integrate Rescale functionality into their internal systems.

Improved Visualization for Pre- and Post-Processing

New visualization, pre-processing, and post-processing tools are critical to our customers productivity, allowing for quick manipulation and investigation of models without the need to transfer the files away from Rescale’s platform.  Soon we will be launching full remote visualization capability for all users, allowing for easy pre- and post-processing without the need to transfer files locally to customers’ desktop or laptop.

Software and Scheduler Integrations

Deeper integration with the software packages allows our customers to more easily execute simulations directly from the GUIs of our partners and integrate the workflow capabilities seamlessly into the Rescale interface.  Hybrid cloud environments will be able to be deployed turnkey with the new native scheduler integrations we will be releasing in 2015.

Enhanced Enterprise Administration

Administrative functionality for managing Rescale within the enterprise is a big focus for us in 2015.  Customers can expect expanded administrative functionality, including, budgeting tools, group and user management, administrative monitoring dashboards, and much more.

If you’re interested in becoming an early adopter for any of the updates mentioned above, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at support@rescale.com and we will make sure you are one of the first to be able to give it a try!
