Penguin Solutions Launches New Cloud-Native HPC/AI Control Plane and Announces Partnership with Google Cloud

Penguin Solutions | November 16, 2022

Penguin Solutions, an SGH brand that provides HPC, AI, and IoT technologies for edge, core, and cloud, today launched Scyld Cloud Central™ control plane, a new cloud-native HPC/AI offering, and announced its partnership with Google Cloud. This new unified solution for on-premises and cloud-based HPC/AI clusters will provide customers with simplified cluster deployment, streamlined user experience, and powerful cost management options. The Scyld Cloud Central control plane is cloud-native software designed to integrate on-premises and cloud-based resources to create flexible HPC and AI environments. The platform, utilizing software from Parallel Works, will support traditional shared cluster models controlled by job schedulers and will also enable the creation of user-specific virtual clusters in the cloud, where each user group has access to a custom-configured environment designed for their specific requirements. The control plane supports the creation of point-and-click workflows that simplify HPC and AI job execution for data scientists and researchers, and lighten the support load for busy system administrators. To further accelerate deployment, the Scyld Cloud Central control plane comes pre-integrated with many of the most popular tools and applications for analysis and simulation. “Many organizations want to leverage HPC-style processing for both HPC and AI workloads, but getting things running in the cloud is unfamiliar and complex when configuring a myriad of compute, storage, and network options,” said Mark Seamans, vice president, cloud solutions and services at Penguin Solutions. “With decades of experience in HPC, Penguin is uniquely positioned to simplify, guide, and assist customers through the complexity of creating customized and cost-optimized solutions.” Seamans added, “We are excited to work with Parallel Works to create advanced customer-specific solutions that utilize Parallel Works’ foundational technology and Penguin’s significant HPC/AI domain knowledge.” To further accelerate system delivery timelines, Penguin provides professional services to collaborate with both user/research teams and system administrators on implementation, training, and ongoing management. This dual benefit enables data scientists and researchers to spend more time using HPC, and busy system admins spend less time tuning and supporting HPC.
