Hexagrid Computing has formed a partnership with the University of Missouri at St. Louis to bring their cloud computing services to a group of young companies that are supported through a program to foster growth of local startups.
ITenterprises (ITe) at the University of Missouri, St. Louis serves as a regional innovation hub in IT and the life sciences by providing space, mentoring, business development training and guidance and computational resources for startups. ITe has extensive laboratory facilities and an HPC center that startups and university researchers use for a wide range of purposes.
To extend the availability of resources to startups in the ITe program, Hexagrid Computing, which is centered in St. Louis near the university’s HPC center is providing its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) resources for ITe startups via a partnership with the university’s high performance computing center.
According to Nassar Arshadi who heads research at the university, the partnership with Hexagrid Computing leverages the current HPC resources via theUMSL’s center “and Hexagrid’s software platform to offer cloud computing services to a wide range of end users who would otherwise be unable to access this quality of information technology resources at a reasonable price.”
Hexagrid Computing has been on the IaaS scene since 2008 and delivers services via its VxDatacenter software, which allows for the on-demand provisioning of IT resources without additional components from third-party software vendors. According to William Lemon who runs the ITenterprises scientific and computing division, this has allowed the existing data center to “run more efficiently so clients can use their resources more effectively.”
