How much will I need to spend to get the HPC system that will accelerate my research?
In our years of experience as providers of turn-key HPC clusters, it is a question we get asked all the time. Understandably so. If you are investing in a high performance computing solution, you want to make sure you are getting the most computing power and storage capacity for the money.
In order to give you a better feel for the cost of HPC, our team at Advanced Clustering Technologies has compiled a pricing sheet to provide you with a side-by-side comparison of cluster costs with or without Infiniband connections. Our pricing sheet is based on budgets of $25,000, $50,000, $75,000, $100,000, $150,000 and $250,000.
With our pricing sheet, you’ll be able to examine how pricing affects the number of cpus, cores, GFLOPs per node, cluster memory and more. Our entry-level cost example assumes a budget of $25,000. This will get you 60 cores, six cpus and 128 GB of total cluster memory with Infiniband connections. Without Infiniband, you’ll get 120 cores, 12 cpus and 384 GB of total cluster memory.
Advanced Clustering will provide you with a customized quote to meet your specific HPC needs and budget.
