We have been working with Penguin Computing to get our simulation software up and running on their new Penguin On Demand service. They have just announced it officially via a press release.
Cardiac electrophysiology simulation requires fast, low latency communication between processors, something that you won’t find in your garden-variety cluster solution, and something that’s very expensive up-front when building your own cluster. This service will allow us access to a high-performance system with a low-latency interconnect. It will integrate nicely as one option among three for making our services available. The other two options are the use of a shared, high-performance multiprocessor server, or a dedicated appliance that we can integrate with your existing cluster resources. These will be detailed on this web site shortly.
