StackHPC develops OpenStack capabilities for research computing use cases. Through extensive experience, we understand HPC and cloud. We know the needs and the shortcomings of each paradigm. We work with our clients to develop solutions that address the gaps in cloud for research computing use cases.
StackHPC works actively with the OpenStack community to promote the research computing use case.
Our CTO is co-founder and co-chair of the OpenStack Foundation's Scientific SIG, and is the lead author of the OpenStack Foundation’s book, “The Crossroads of Cloud and HPC: OpenStack for Scientific Research”.
StackHPC helps drive the development of missing functionality for our clients and the broader research computing community. Within the StackHPC technical team we have current PTLs for Kolla and Blazar, and core team members for Nova, Ironic and Monasca.
Our business has four primary areas of activity:
• Upstream development of OpenStack capability for Research Computing
• Consultancy to organisations for managing HPC service transition
• Development and integration of HPC technologies into cloud-native contexts
• Scientific OpenStack community engagement
