What is Alces Flight Compute?

Alces Flight Compute provides a fully-featured, scalable high performance computing (HPC) environment for research and scientific computing.

Architected to operate on both cloud and bare-metal platforms, Flight Compute rapidly delivers a whole HPC cluster, ready to go, complete with job scheduler and applications.

Clusters are deployed in independent, secure networked environments, with SSH and graphical-desktop connectivity for users. Data management tools for POSIX and AWS S3 object storage are included to help users transfer files and manage storage resources.

What makes Alces Flight Compute unique?

Alces Flight Compute is configured with Alces Gridware, putting over 1,250 open-source applications and libraries at your fingertips — with more additions all the time. Additionally, Alces Flight Compute is compatible with industry-leading commercial applications through the Flight Connections programme.

With Alces Flight Compute you can install quickly and get into the research immediately. You can choose from depots available for quick batch deployment of popular applications, or install core applications knowing that dependencies will automatically appear alongside. Need multiple versions of the same applications? Alces Flight Compute handles this seamlessly, ensuring you've got absolutely everything you need and allowing your analysis to start as quickly as possible.

We add new applications all the time. Why not check out our Gridware library to see what is currently available? And if you don't see what you need, contact us on our community support portal to see if your application or workflow can be integrated into our software.
