Ty­rone taps the cloud to ex­pand reach of High Per­for­mance Com­put­ing

InformationWeek - - News - — Srikanth RP

In In­dia, adop­tion of high per­for­mance com­put­ing has been typ­i­cally boosted by govern­ment spend­ing. While HPC ca­pa­bil­i­ties are highly sought af­ter even by pri­vate en­ter­prises, set­ting up a HPC in­fra­struc­ture is a com­plex task, and re­quires high cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture and op­er­a­tional costs. Ty­rone Sys­tems, which is known for its im­ple­men­ta­tion of the ParamYuva II, In­dia’s fastest hy­brid su­per­com­puter till date, plans to tap this la­tent de­mand for HPC so­lu­tions through a cloud-based so­lu­tion.

“With the launch of a pay-per-use HPC so­lu­tion, we are tar­get­ing aca­demic and commercial users who other­wise can­not in­vest in a high CAPEX and OPEX in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tion en­vi­ron­ment,” says San­jay Lodha, CEO, Ty­rone Sys­tems. Lodha ex­pects de­mand to come from in­dus­tries such as med­i­cal imag­ing, fi­nan­cial trad­ing, oil and gas ex­plo­ration, biosci- ence, data ware­hous­ing, data se­cu­rity and en­ter­tain­ment. “These in­dus­tries have in­creas­ingly been look­ing to cloud-based HPC so­lu­tions as a way to avoid up­front large fi­nan­cial com­mit­ments and to yield faster project turn­around times. By mov­ing HPC ap­pli­ca­tions to the cloud, cus­tomers seek to do away with risks as­so­ci­ated with un­der-pro­vi­sion­ing, un­der-uti­liza­tion of HPC re­sources while ben­e­fit­ing im­mensely from built in vir­tu­al­iza­tion sup­port,” he says.

Ty­rone is tar­get­ing sec­tors such as man­u­fac­tur­ing, en­gi­neer­ing, pharma, ed­u­ca­tion and sci­en­tific re­search, fi­nan­cial ser­vices and me­dia & en­ter­tain­ment. “We have more than 300 HPC in­stal­la­tions in the coun­try to­day. Since we have just launched the HPC ser­vice in In­dia, we have cur­rently given it to our se­lect cus­tomers to test,” says Lodha.
