Get Running in The Cloud – Today
As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have become mainstream, so has demand for running HPC and AI workloads in cloud environments. Penguin Cloud Central™ for HPC is a fully managed, cloud-based, end-to-end solution for high performance computing that makes it easier and faster for end-users, developers, and data scientists to deploy pure HPC, pure AI, and converged HPC/AI workloads on high-performance clusters.
While it is built for the cloud, you can easily extend this environment to seamlessly manage workloads and data in hybrid environments that can span both on-premises and cloud-based environments – and because Scyld Cloud Central was purpose-built for HPC and AI, it provides integrated support for all the applications and tools that your users and data scientists are already leveraging.

Scyld Cloud Central Benefits
Broad Support for Applications and HPC/AI Platforms
Scyld Cloud Central enables users and scientists to run a wide variety of modeling, simulation, and data analysis applications. Any application that can be executed on traditional HPC/AI infrastructure can be integrated and automated with Cloud Central.
From public clouds and supercomputers to in-house clusters, the platform is highly flexible and broadly compatible to meet the needs of your most demanding workloads. The platform provides full support for environments that include the latest CPU, GPU, FPGA and network fabric components – both in the cloud and within your data center.
Simple Configuration of Powerful Cluster Environments
Scyld Cloud Central allows your users and scientists to execute workflows across thousands of cores using an intuitive user interface. With pre-specified inputs and outputs, the execution environment prevents errors by checking input files for data type and configurations for appropriate settings.
Control resource settings and configure new compute clusters as needed. Users can select from a range of instance types, set the maximum number of workers in a pool, and adjust settings to automatically spin up and shut down pools.
Validated for HPC/AI Deployments on Major Cloud Platforms
Scyld Cloud Central was designed to deliver mission-critical, core HPC and AI solutions in the cloud. The solution, combined with expert services from Penguin Computing, accelerates your ability to rapidly provision compute and storage resources using an infrastructure-as-code model that empowers your users, data scientists and administrators to be the innovation engine for your organization.
Our platform is validated and supported for operation with major cloud environments – and with industry dominant workload scheduling and data storage systems – to provide your users with maximum flexibility and choice.
Integrated Web-based Data and Application Visualization
Traditional HPC and AI/ML environments require users to download large data files to on-premises workstations for pre/post processing, model development, and data analysis offline from the computing resource and centralized storage. This is a time-consuming process that makes it hard to create an efficient workflow with predictable time to results.
Scyld Cloud Workstation – an available component of Cloud Central – provides users with high fidelity, workstation- grade access to their visualization applications directly within the browser. No data movement is required – and user productivity soars.
Extensive Suite of Pre-Integrated Software Tools & Applications
High Performance Computing and AI users rely on a broad array of applications and libraries to accelerate their work in analyzing data and simulating complex processes.
Scyld Cloud Central includes a marketplace that allows for the easy integration of dozens of popular tools for use cases such as CAE/CFD, weather modeling and mathematical analysis. For AI, point-and-click enablement of tools such as Pytorch and TensorFlow allow your users to drive powerful workflows in minutes.
