Anyone Can Use HPC in the Cloud

The RightScale cloud management platform enables organizations to easily deploy and manage cloud servers. The integration with UniCloud extends the RightScale platform by automating an Intel Cluster Ready standardized Grid Engine cluster configuration with the simplicity of a ServerTemplate. All with just one click, a Univa Grid Engine Cluster on demand.

Intel Cluster Ready in the Cloud

Intel® Cluster Ready (ICR) is an architecture and program that makes it easier to gain the performance advantages of HPC clusters. Univa One Click HPC takes ICR to the next level by embedding configuration validation in HPC Cloud architecture. Peace of mind comes with the assurance of this validation program.

Pricing You Can Live With

Univa One Click HPC features your choice of pricing models. Choose from an affordable monthly flat-fee or enjoy the flexibility of the dynamic pay-per-use model. No initiation or set-up fees, and it is as simple as the click of a button.

Powered by RightScale Means Simplicity

Thousands of companies depend on RightScale every day to run business-critical applications in the cloud. Whether you are just getting started and need a simple on-ramp to the cloud or require support for complex deployments spanning multiple clouds, RightScale provides complete automation while simultaneously giving you the flexibility, control, and portability you desire.

Univa One Click HPC leverages RightScale's Cloud-Ready ServerTemplates. Even with minimal knowledge of cloud architectures, it is possible to take advantage of our pre-packaged Grid Engine ServerTemplate to get up and running on the cloud fast, and rather focus your time on your own application while trusting in the reliability, resiliency, and performance of the Cloud.

The benefits of One-Click HPC UniCloud with RightScale include the simplicity of launching for novice cloud users, allowing organizations to create clusters to meet demand such that capex investments are limited, and a dramatic reduction in opex (administration of clusters).
