Moving from Hardware to the Cloud: Elastic HPC Enhances the Capacity to Innovate

Many CAE users today — running powerful but demanding applications suites like ANSYS® and Numeca® — lack the compute power to meet their needs. Some users rely solely on their workstations to power their simulations. Some work for companies that have invested in HPC hardware but often must wait to use the clusters, due to […]

What are the hallmarks of a high-performance data center?

People sometimes talk about wholesale and hyperscale data centers. They talk about co-location data centers. But there is not sufficient attention today paid to the data center that is made for dense, high-performance hardware. The high-performance computer (HPC) cluster, after all, is the engine of today’s big data and AI-driven industries. The data centers that […]

Case Studies and Solution Briefs
How atNorth Transformed the HPC Operating Environment of a Leading Manufacturer in the Automotive Industry

As HPC adoption increases across industries and verticals, some companies face a difficult challenge. Their workload demands an upgrade to HPC, but their budget and staffing seems more suitable to a low cost, low maintenance and high convenience cloud offering. Yet the nature of their business and competitive marketplace may also require all the rigorous […]

Bring your data center to tiers: How customizing your data center usage can lead to big savings

Many companies overspend on data center resources, but — don’t cry! — that doesn’t need to be you! As a data center provider, we here at atNorth understand that no one customer is the same – and that each company has its own unique needs for uptime and security. To reflect that, we […]

Go with the HPCFLOW

Taking HPC Applications to the Cloud Manufacturing and engineering today is a software-driven field. Designing products entering the marketplace – with their suites of electronics, sensors, composite materials, 3D printed components, and customization requirements – requires engineers to use a range of high-end computer-aided engineering and manufacturing applications packages like ANSYS®. Yet leveraging applications like […]

HPC Profile: Ægir Rafn Magnússon, Director of Business Development

We created our HPC Profile series as a way for you to get to know our HPC Team and, of course, atNorth, a little better. So, following a non-stop June, we wanted to slow things down this month and take a moment to reflect on our history, and what better way to look […]

HPC at the edge of ideal: How atNorth has leveraged geography to become Europe’s largest data center

If a person could custom-make the ideal environment for hosting a data center, the exercise would probably wind up constructing a place that looks a lot like Iceland. From its robust and modern power infrastructure to its cost-competitive, reliable and 100% renewable electricity to its chilly climate that cuts data center cooling costs to extremely […]

Scale up to on-demand, High Performance Compute with HPCFLOW

From today’s big data to CAE to AI and machine learning workloads, high performance computing (HPC) is in high demand. But some companies’ and organizations’ budgets do not have the CapEx available to deploy a new HPC cluster — or to add HPC resources to their already burdened HPC cluster. atNorth (atNorth), a […]

Elastic HPC Infrastructure: How non-hybrid HPC could be leaving customers behind

At ISC 2018 in June, atNorth (atNorth) hosted an invitation-only event for strategic partners, key customers and potential customers to discuss the state of HPC and how atNorth can best navigate the emerging trends in the HPC marketplace. Discussion centered around atNorth’s innovative cloud HPC offering HPCFLOW. However, one of the most […]
