New HPCcloud.com Support Service for OpenNebula

Addressing the Cloud Computing Needs of Computing Environments

OpenNebula is being used by many supercomputing and leading research centers to build private, public and hybrid clouds for hosting virtualized computational environments, such as batch farms and computing clusters, or for providing users with new "HPC as a service"resource provisioning models. Cloud computing enables the execution of flexible and elastic cluster and high performance computing services on demand while reducing the associated cost of building the datacenter infrastructure.

C12G Labs announced today the creation of specialized support services to customers and partners in specific application domains, such as the High Performance Computing, Hosting and Telecom industries. HPCcloud.com is the first of these new support service programs targeted to specific business or industry domains that has been created to give expert advice on OpenNebulaPro to organizations using computer clusters to solve advanced computation problems.
