HPC Cluster

High Performance IaaS-based HPC Cluster Environment

HPC Cluster auto-configures and provides HPC (High-performance computing) cluster environment that is needed to execute highly complex computations such as CAE (Computer-aided engineering) application. Configuring a high-performance computing environment is easier with the help of Bare Metal Server and File Storage (BM) of Samsung Cloud Platform and computing resources are utilized efficiently using Job Scheduler.

Service Architecture

Users → Apply for HPC Service → HPC Cluster Provisioning (Compute Setting, Network Setting, Storage Setting, Middleware Setting) → Cluster/Server Access Information → User
HPC Cluster Provisioning → HCP Cluster [ Bare Metal Server(linux/ compiler/ MPI Library/ Job Scheduler) - File Storage - BM (computing, Linux) - BM (computing, Linux) - BM (computing, Linux) - ... - BM (computing, Linux)

Key Features

  • HPC cluster creation

    - Provide up to 20 Bare Metal Servers for computational nodes (When using twenty 48 core, 960 core can be used)
    - Enable hyper-threading control on Bare Metal Server
    - File Storage(BM) integration setting
    - Auto install middleware (job scheduler, compiler, MPI library)

  • HPC cluster management

    - Settings change/stop/start for HPC cluster in operation
    - No charges made when a HPC cluster stops, data stored on connected File Storage will remain unchanged
    - Send notifications when a HPC cluster is created or scaled out

  • Utilization of job scheduler

    - Request specific resource features such as computational node, CPU core per node, memory, etc.
    - Resources will be allocated soon after in case of insufficient available resource
    - Check work status and store usage history

※ HPC job monitoring and web-based work environment to be provided in the future

Pricing

    • Billing
    • Billing for HPC cluster operational service : Per-minute charges based on the amount of time the node server was on (Provided for free in 2022)
    • For middleware SW, open source is offered free of charge
    • IaaS fees are charged separately depending on usage
