Demo HPC Applications and Hardware

Now Available: Free Demo of Intel Xeon 5, AMD EPYC Gen 4, and NVIDIA L40S

Nor-Tech has established a demo cluster to help with the HPC decision process; choosing the right processors or justifying the addition of HPC technology. We have AMD, INTEL, and NVIDIA GPUs available to gauge the best performance for the application.  Multiple nodes demonstrate the performance benefit and return on investment of investing in HPC technology.

See how much faster your code will run on the latest applications and hardware.

    Demo Cluster FAQs

    1. Is there any obligation at all?

    2. Is there a waiting list?
    There usually isn’t but there can be, depending on demand.

    3. How long will it take to get results?
    It depends on the job. It can vary depending on configuration complexity; generally, 1-2 days.

    4. What exactly can and can’t I test on the demo cluster?
    There are some limitations depending on ISV licensing.

    5. Can I test apps and hardware that aren’t currently integrated in the cluster?

    6. Can we install our own applications?
    Yes, depending on availability.

    7. Can I try different BIOS or application configurations to learn what works best with my applications?

    8. Can we try various hardware configurations, like various amounts of memory or drive types?

    9. How can I share the results with my colleagues?
    You will receive the output of your jobs in the form of a report and may be able to remote in to generate your own report.

    10. Wouldn’t it be better to just go directly to the OEM or ISV and request a demo?
    You would probably find that more challenging. Most likely you wouldn’t be able to run your own job and an ISV may want to send you to the cloud. In addition, hardware OEMs and ISVs would not want to benchmark one competitor against another.

    11. Do you have any incentive to favor one OEM or ISV over another?

    12. What’s in it for Nor-Tech?
    One of our goals is for you to be able to justify the return on investment in new or upgraded equipment to your upper management.
