Super Computing Cluster (SCC) is based on the ECS Bare Metal (EBM) instance product. Utilizing the high-speed interconnectivity of RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) technology, SCC greatly improves network performance and increases the acceleration ratio of large-scale clusters. SCC has all the advantages of EBM instances, and provides high-quality network performance featuring high bandwidth and low latency. For more information, see ECS Bare Metal instance and Super Computing Clusters.

This article describes how to create an SCC instance. For more information about instance creation, see create an image by using the wizard.

The following configurations are recommended for SCC instances:

  • Region: Currently, only China East 2 (Shanghai) Zone D and Zone B support SCC instances.
  • Instance Type: Instance type families scch5 and sccg5 are available. For more information about instance types, see instance type families.
  • Image: Select Public Image. Currently, only a custom Linux CentOS 7.5 image for SCC is supported.

  • Storage: SCC support up to 16 data disks. You can add a data disk during or after instance creation, and then mount the data disk
