When your great research project involves computational intensive tasks, the only chance for you to witness the date of accomplishment is to either equip yourself with your own powerful computer or, obtain it somewhere. With Physon’s supercomputer time rental service, we provide you with parts of the resource ranging from the world-class supercomputing centers that are among the most powerful ones today with nearly a hundred petaFLOPS, millions of cores, thousand TB memory to smaller ones at the reasonable prices. You could select your suitable amount of computational cores, GPUs, storage media’s size, number of nodes with the suitable rental modes. Part of the computational resources available can be found from the table below. More information can be obtained from us (e.g. GPU’s node, so on)
Is it better to rent than to buy?
In many cases (though not all) , yes!
… if your problem size is large
…if you don’t want to waste time and money in taking care of the giant supercomputer
Assuming a reasonably good 24 cores computer node would cost 100K HKD (or ~12750 USD), 10 millions HKD (1.275 millions) would give you 2400 cores. If you rent the supercomputer from us, Physon, with <1% of the total cost, you can already enjoy this giant computational facilities maintained by world-class computational centre for many days (since the cost for renting the computer time is in general calculated as per core-hour) .
But NO if you are a billionaire 😉 or you just want some light computing systems (contact us for details).
In this mode, depending on your research project, for each simulation or calculation, you could enjoy a flexible amount of CPU cores that fit your need each time based on your rented core-hours. The supercomputing facilities may be shared with other research groups. Your Jobs will be lined up with those from other researchers.
Exclusive Ownership mode
This is available for some of our computational facilities. In this mode, the nodes are solely used by your research group/institution for the given time periods. By discussing with us, the number of computer nodes and CPU cores and RAM that satisfied you the most are at your command. You can enjoy your very own supercomputer during your rented period, summit your jobs at any time instantly as you wish.
No one can stop you from computing!
No more waiting and delay!
Interested researchers are welcome to contact us for more information. Our user can enjoy our 24/7 technical support, pre-installed compiler, software pre-installation, possible fast data transfer between supercomputing centres and many more. Try it out now!!
