atNorth offers Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High-Performance Computing (HPC) ‑as a service solutions that are dedicated to empowering customers to execute HPC & AI operations as efficiently as possible. HPCFLOW is the name of our HPC on-demand platform. It’s different from mainstream cloud HPC solutions as it provides bare metal compute nodes for ultimate performance and allows organizations that use HPC & AI clusters to gain or maintain their competitive edge.
atNorth’s HPC & AI offerings range from the bare metal experience offering of HPC & AI Cluster as a service to the turnkey alternative that is HPC & AI as a service. In short, we offer a fully flexible solution to meet your business’s unique HPC needs. HPCFLOW clusters excel in terms of price performance and security control. All of this without affecting infrastructure scalability, while facilitating maximum compute efficiency and effectiveness to suit you.
Our HPCFLOW HPC & AI as a Service offers customers the possibility of low-touch, worry-free GPU and CPU clusters powered with 100% renewable energy.
atNorth’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) option, HPCFLOW clusters allow clients to consume flexible HPC & AI clusters on a predictable and transparent cost model.
As part of our data center services we can offer customers full management of your HPC & AI clusters located on our premises.
We’re committed to sustainable data center and HPC & AI operations. All our HPC solutions and colocation services operate with 100% renewable energy and extreme power efficiency.
