Tyrone taps the cloud to expand reach of High Performance Computing
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.
