Super Computing Cluster

Super Computing Service provides ultimate computing performance and parallel computing cluster services for high-performance computing through high-speed RDMA network and heterogeneous accelerators such as GPU.

Based on Elastic Bare Metal (EBM) instances and high-speed interconnectivity of RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) technology, Super Computing Cluster (SCC) servers improve network performance and increase the acceleration ratio of large-scale clusters. SCC servers boast all the advantages of EBM instances and feature high-quality network performance with high bandwidth and low latency.

SCC servers cater to high-performance computing for artificial intelligence, science/engineering computing, and audio/video processing.
