Penguin Solutions Announces New Release of Scyld Software for HPC Deployment, Cluster Management and Secure Remote User Access

New versions of Scyld ClusterWare and Scyld Cloud Workstation software include performance boosts and updated user interface to better optimize and manage HPC environments

Dallas, TX Supercomputing 2022 – November 14, 2022 – Penguin Solutions, an SGH brand (Nasdaq: SGH) that provides HPC, AI, and IoT technologies for edge, core, and cloud, announced today the release of new versions of both Scyld ClusterWare® and Scyld Cloud Workstation software. Penguin’s Scyld software portfolio helps customers manage their HPC environments and get maximum benefit from their investment.

Scyld ClusterWare 12.0, due to be released in the first quarter of 2023, includes significant improvements in performance and stability, and introduces a completely redesigned GUI. The updated interface provides administrators with powerful tools to manage and monitor their compute environment saving valuable IT time. This release increases ease of use without sacrificing the power and flexibility that customers of the Scyld ClusterWare suite have come to rely on to optimally manage their HPC environments.

Scyld Cloud Workstation 12.1 is available now as an update to version 12.0, which was released in September 2022. Users have many options when it comes to choosing a remote desktop access solution; however, few are able to deliver the dual combination of superior performance and the broad feature set of Scyld Cloud Workstation 12.1. For example, the new release is able to support a frame rate of 60fps across all platforms, with resolutions up to 4K -- all delivered through a standard browser without plugins. With this increased level of performance and refined ease-of-use features, customers of Penguin’s Scyld Cloud Workstation software will have a noticeably better experience and increased productivity across all aspects.

“We’re excited to introduce the latest versions of Scyld ClusterWare and Scyld Cloud Workstation software, which are designed to support the worldwide HPC market as it continues to grow,” said Phil Pokorny, chief technology officer at Penguin Computing. “With Scyld ClusterWare and Scyld Cloud Workstation software, customers will be able to manage their HPC environments at the fastest speeds, and with new performance boosts and updated user interface, managing complex HPC from remote locations has never been easier.”

Penguin Computing will be displaying both Scyld Cloud Workstation 12.1 and an early release of Scyld ClusterWare 12.0 at the Penguin Solutions booth #2400 at SC22 in Dallas this week.
