In our latest case study, a weather forecasting researcher at Weather It Is, LTD, shares his experiences using Advanced Clustering Technology’s ACTnowHPC on-demand cloud high performance computing cluster to forecast potentially severe winter snowstorms.
Before Weather It Is started using ACTnowHPC, the company faced a lack of availability on its own HPC cluster, where the forecasters were running various Fortran codes and running on about 150 cores every day. Weather It Is needed something reliable that fit the budget and offered full technical support.
“We chose the ACTnowHPC system because it offers reliability and quick turn-around times without the headaches of owning and managing your own system,” said Weather It Is CEO Barry Lynn. “Set-up was easy. We mirrored our own high powered computing system on the HPC cloud system and adapted our programs that had already been running on our internal system.”
