Last year, Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) expanded the Lenovo TruScale brand to include Everything-as-a-Service, and during Winterstock22 unveiled Lenovo TruScale™ High-Performance Computing as a Service (HPCaaS), delivering the power of supercomputing to organizations of all sizes through a cloud-like experience. The new offering provides a flexible approach to high-performance computing, speeds up resource availability, and improves security.

Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS

Cloud-based HPC is a fast-growing segment of high-performance computing providing on-demand resource consumption as the need for more efficient and scalable computing resources grows. A typical HPC cluster runs at nearly full throttle due to rapidly increasing demands for continuous compute and storage cycles, leaving little room for running additional workloads. Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS technology provides rack-level resources to innovation across multiple sectors, including pharma, manufacturing, and healthcare.

TruScale HPC as-a-Service is a simple, pay per use, plug and play model, managed and supported by Lenovo HPC System Admins. Lenovo TruScale offers businesses of all sizes an everything-as-a-service platform with the flexibility needed to stay competitive with a scalable, cloud-like consumption model and predictable payment options for hardware and service inclusions. The transition to a fully integrated as-a-service strategy addresses common business challenges and provides administrators with the performance and flexibility of pay-as-you-grow. With Lenovo TruScale, infrastructure solutions are fully managed, with the advantages of an on-premise cloud environment along with Lenovo data management in a hybrid environment.

According to said Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC at Lenovo,

“Lenovo’s TruScale HPC as a Service allows for incredible innovation with the flexibility for HPC customers to expand their clusters when needed. We designed this offering to make high-performance computing resources easier and faster to deploy, offering researchers the freedom to think bigger and without technology being a barrier to their success.”

The on-premise service maximizes HPC cluster resources and controls shared access through a simple, pay-per-use, model managed and supported by Lenovo. With technology that is installed right at the customer data center, HPC managers can dynamically access and provision resources on-demand.  Additional cluster resources can be obtained through simple “push-button” access, which allows businesses to utilize further computing, storage, and acceleration capabilities as needed. Very similar to cloud services available today.

With Lenovo TruScale HPCaaS, customers have the capability to scale their supercomputing requirements as needed, including:

  • Pay for what they consume with no hidden costs
  • Easily scale HPC clusters by removing resource limitations
  • Run applications of any size without architectural bottlenecks
  • Translate capital investments into operational expenses, avoiding delays on long and intensive budget approvals
  • Manage budget and visualize consumption and billing through Lenovo TruScale Portal
  • Access to specialized hardware.

The on-premises HPC capability allows continued secure access to data without changes in job scripts, or risks associated with public cloud exposure.

While customers retain full control of data security, Lenovo provides a management team to support the HPC implementation, from installation to operation. A dedicated support team is also fully available for customers to utilize if ever necessary.
