What is E-HPC

Last Updated: Aug 05, 2018

Elastic High Performance Computing (E-HPC) aggregates computing capabilities, and uses parallel computing to solve massive challenges of science, engineering, and business. E-HPC is applied to almost every aspect of our lives. E-HPC helps to solve problems in various fields including oil exploration, finance, emergency management, medicine, and IT.

To meet scaling demands for E-HPC capabilities, Alibaba Cloud has introduced Elastic High Performance Computing (E-HPC). Based on the existing infrastructure, E-HPC provides users with an all-in-one high-performance computing service cloud platform as an HPCaaS public cloud service.

E-HPC supports Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with high-performance CPU and heterogeneous computing GPU instances. Furthermore, E-HPC supports Platform as a Service (PaaS) with high-performance computing software stack, and Software as a Service (SaaS) with application template customization. E-HPC is also applicable to education and scientific research organizations with the demand for large-scale computing capabilities. E-HPC supports applications such as E-HPC, AI, and large-scale data analysis.
