PEER 1 Hosting Highlights Cloud Offerings at SC12

Vancouver, BC, Nov. 6 – PEER 1 Hosting, the global IT hosting provider, announced today that it is exhibiting at Super Computing 2012, November 10-16, 2012, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. At booth #115, PEER 1 Hosting will highlight its HPC Self-Serve Cloud offering and Managed HPC Cloud offering, which give customers a high performance cloud computing environment with all the flexibility and accessibility of the cloud, but without the hefty price tag or vendor lock-in.

Powered by PEER 1 Hosting’s public cloud platform, the HPC Self-Serve Cloud fuses virtual and physical servers with a private network to give customers a seamless, self-serve solution that is both fast and secure. Ideal for handling intermittent projects, it allows customers to deploy up to 665 teraflops in as little as fifteen minutes and is available on a pay-by-the-hour or monthly basis.

The Managed HPC Cloud is ideal for businesses with a consistently high volume of projects that require more HPC power and a custom supercomputing infrastructure. Inherently flexible when compared to the more standardized and utility-based Self-Serve HPC Cloud, it allows for greater GPU-based HPC computing resources and flexibility in hardware and additional services like load balancing, proprietary operating systems and sophisticated networking solutions.

“Our HPC offerings help companies seize new market opportunities with superior agility to set them apart from the competition,” said Greg Rusu, General Manager of PEER 1 Hosting’s public cloud division. “Being able to tap into on-demand HPC resources in ways that are fast, secure, reliable, scalable, and, most importantly, affordable, gives our customers an added level of responsiveness to their most pressing business needs.”

Super Computing 2012, the premiere international high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis conference, brings together as many as 10,000 professionals from academia, industry and government. Super Computing 2012 will feature one of the largest exhibitions in conference history, with 366 exhibitors from industry and research institutions around the world.
