vScaler’s proposition supports this demand via a dedicated, application-specific HPC cloud platform, one that allows users to provision full HPC-on-demand clusters, Big Data analytics and accelerated GPU compute. This will now be enhanced through the relationship with Aegis Data. Currently, one of the biggest challenges facing data centre facilities is the ability to support the necessary power requirements or headroom for growth, and in doing so capping what can be achieved for customers. Aegis Data’s data halls are specifically engineered to deliver the high-density power and cooling required by these Next-Generation platforms, and in doing so provide the perfect complement for vScaler’s offering.
The three-pronged collaboration will further leverage on GCX’s core assets, which include a global network and a leading ecosystem of on-net clouds and providers, enabling seamless, latency-guaranteed, private connectivity between cloud platforms and data centers, colocation environments, or offices, to reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
“The alignment between Aegis and GCX represents one of the most innovative and progressive IT platforms on the market today. Demand for HPC capabilities is growing at a frantic rate, and in meeting the requirements of a diversifying market, it is imperative that we are able to demonstrate that we have the power and connectivity required to support growing data demands” says David Power, Chief Technology Officer at vScaler.
“This triangulated partnership supports these demands in perfect harmony, meaning that those organisations looking for HPC requirements can have their demands serviced all under one roof. This is a truly scalable offering that means our customers can focus on their core business proposition, safe in the knowledge that their IT infrastructure can grow with them regardless of their data requirements,” Power added.
Greg McCulloch, Chief Executive Officer of Aegis Data, said: “The proliferation of HPC has meant that data centre facilities can no longer rely on just providing HPC capabilities as a means to gain a competitive advantage. What is now enabling providers to stand apart is their ability to demonstrate how they can deliver this service more rapidly, smartly and more efficiently than their competitors. Our partnership with GCX and vScaler demonstrates this perfectly—ensuring one of the most powerful HPC propositions available.”
