Barcelona, April 7th 2020 — From December 2019, HPCNow! became a Sylabs reseller, providing support of the products SingularityPRO and Singularity Enterprise for EMEA and APAC. HPCNow! will provide the first and second level support, while Sylabs will provide the third level support. This agreement is the result of the requirements of HPCNow customers and the demand for managing increasingly complex HPC and artificial intelligence (AI) workflows.
In addition to the popular Singularity container technology, Sylabs also provides a set of key features and services for enabling access to HPC and AI to users with short exposure in these technologies. This set of capabilities has been able to accelerate HPC, AI and other performance-sensitive application workloads while enabling absolute secure mobility between a different kind of infrastructures.
Singularity has evolved into a single universal environment able to achieve not only portability but also performance and reproducibility. Thanks to Singularity Enterprise services, users can also integrate CI/CD pipelines to automate deployment as part of the development workflow. The remote builder service allows users to build their own applications from their small capacity desktops and deploy them on-premises, on any public cloud or out to the computational edge.
Singularity is currently used by academia, government agencies, national labs, biotechnology, oil and gas, aerospace, EDA, and many other industries.
With this agreement, HPCNow! adds one more to its long list of partners and support services it is able to offer and provide to its clients.
