RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.– MAY 18, 2023 – Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced a new option for a metered TruScale model, designed specifically for a High Performance Computing (HPC) as a Service solution, that shortens procurement cycles and allows customers to pay only for the IT infrastructure they use in a monthly as-a-service payment model. The enhanced Lenovo TruScale offering ensures HPC deployments are delivered by its HPC Professional Services team, who are experts in end-to-end ownership of HPC deployments by project managing the delivery of TruScale for HPC hardware to service deployment. Once deployed, a dedicated HPC Systems Admin team takeover to proactively monitor the hardware and software applications services to improve performance and cluster availability.
This new capability from Lenovo TruScale offers a consumption-based model with an innovative HPC exclusive metering capability based on compute resources (cores, memory, GPU, storage, licenses, etc.) used by HPC jobs. This is in addition to the fixed subscription pricing offered as part of the original TruScale for HPC solution. It leverages Lenovo Intelligent Computing Orchestration (LiCO) for usage metering, and billing. LiCO also supports REST API to allow integration with customer or third-party automation.
With built-in services, Enterprise-level security, and flexible procurement options, the new Lenovo TruScale for HPC offering is now available to meet the requirements of HPC centers needing as-a-service options to deliver services to their users in a simple, cost-effective manner. It also makes it easier to operate, maintain and update the cluster environment going forward.
“With Lenovo TruScale, our customers can confidently plan for the future knowing they have the agility and scalability they need to succeed in a constantly evolving business landscape,” said Dale Aultman, Vice President & General Manager of Infrastructure Solutions Group Services, Lenovo “Lenovo Metered TruScale for HPC with built in HPC professional services, provides a tailored offering to customers looking for cloud-like flexibility and scalability in an on-prem package. Users are enabled to maintain the speed and security needed to innovate at scale.”
The current raised inflationary pressures and increased focus on datacenter sustainability has affected technology planning and operations; business leaders the world over are seeking viable options for cost optimizationiHPC operating models are traditionally a largely on-premises-centered delivery model, with long procurement cycles, higher upfront costs, with a cycle of managing, refreshing, and retiring hardware. Lenovo TruScale makes it simple to install, operate, manage, and scale on-prem HPC infrastructure in a cloud-like model with dedicated technical specialists and HPC systems admins managing hardware to allow teams to remain focused on innovation.
“HPC customers demand a lot from their systems because their users demand a lot from them” said Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC at Lenovo. “Being able to seamlessly scale a cluster to meet those user demands is extremely valuable to any HPC environment. The new metering capability of TruScale for HPC, combined with Lenovo HPC hardware administration, will give customers greater control over their resources, budgets, and time.”
