Alces Flight Launches Concertim

Delivering Sustainable Computing for Researchers, Engineers and Scientists

We are pleased to unveil the latest Alces Flight product – a new High Performance Computing (HPC) cloud delivery platform called Concertim. Originally unveiled at the 2023 Supercomputing Conference series (SC23), Concertim is designed for building private and public cloud environments that can be tailored to user’s unique requirements, while offering tools that help to drive down the cost and carbon footprint of research computing. Delivered via an intuitive web portal, Concertim provides users with the capabilities to configure the compute resources they need and then monitor cost, power and carbon footprint within a familiar HPC cluster layout.

Alces’s new product allows enterprise IT teams, solution providers and data-centres to provide state-of-the-art HPC services to customers without the cost and risk of investing in a specialist in-house team. Alces has already partnered with a number of data-centres that use cheap, renewable energy and recycle waste heat in order to offer low-cost, low-carbon cloud HPC solutions.

“Our new product aims to address a common issue with HPC,” says Wil Mayers of Alces Flight, “The complexity of using an HPC cluster is a big enough task for our partners and end-users, without the added complication of figuring out how to set-up and optimise the platform for best cost and power efficiency. Concertim massively simplifies the process of getting access to an appropriate compute resource for a typical HPC, AI or machine learning (ML) workload. Users are presented with a simple dashboard that allows them to launch a cluster that suits their particular needs — while clearly showing them the efficiency, cost and carbon impact of their computations.”
