vScaler is a private Cloud platform that enables the customer to implement a secure, scalable and flexible IT infrastructure enhancing transformation and creating operational efficiency and true business benefit.
The vScaler cloud platform is powered by OpenStack; a leading open source IaaS provider, which powers many of the world’s most notable science and research organisations.
Finance, Government, Broadcast & Media, Scientific Research, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing and Bioinformatics are simply a few of the verticals that can leverage the vScaler cloud platform and services. vScaler allows you to provision full HPC-on-Demand clusters, Big Data analytics, accelerated GPU compute (for Machine Learning), tiered and accelerated storage platforms. In contrast with other IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) only platforms, we work with our clients to optimise their infrastructure (hardware and network) to allow their desired applications to run successfully in a private cloud environment.
vScaler Technology Capabilities
vScaler for HPC
Our finely tuned software enables users to deploy HPC clusters of any scale. The HPC-on-Demand product provides a compelling solution for many challenges of delivering flexible infrastructure for research computing.
Our interface takes all the administrative burden out of configuring a complex analytical cluster and software eco-system. Select from your preferred distribution (Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR) and begin running data-intensive applications or IOT (Internet Of Things) analytics in minutes.
VSCALER TECHNOLOGY CAPABILITIES
vScaler for AI and Deep Learning
vScaler enables users to spin up a deep learning environment with all the appropriate DL frameworks installed and ready for use. These frameworks are also accelerated using the world’s fastest GPUs, purpose-built to dramatically reduce training time for Deep learning and Machine Learning algorithms and AI simulations.
Leveraging multiple storage platforms, each with unique underlying technologies, vScaler can provide a wide range of solutions ideal for low latency, high performance data access. From DRAM to NVDIMMs, right through to traditional spinning disk, vScaler can deliver a tiered, optimal storage solution to eliminate bottlenecks.
