Cycle Computing, a provider of cloud computing orchestration software, announced the general availability of the newest version of its flagship offering CycleCloud. CycleCloud V6 makes multi-environment management easier than ever before and is designed to deliver greater flexibility in managing workloads, cloud access, and cluster set-up.
CycleCloud V6 is intended to help administrators, users, and organizations now have more access, visibility, and control over all of the multiple approaches possible.
CycleCloud V6 offers a variety of new features that lead to greater flexibility including improved support for multiple cloud service providers, which reduces provider-specific complexity in cluster configuration, as well as more flexible role-based access controls for delegating cluster access and management to users.
The upgraded solution also enables automatic creation of AWS Placement Groups per job to improve interconnect performance for MPI jobs by keeping cores as physically close as possible, and includes support for AWS minimum request sizes as well as AWS Spot Launch Groups, ensuring MPI and other multi-instance jobs receive all the required on-demand or spot compute resources.
“CycleCloud has saved countless hours overcoming the challenges typically associated with Cloud HPC and brought in real ROI,” said Jason Stowe, CEO of Cycle Computing. “Our CycleCloud V6 further optimizes what is already unique about its predecessor, bringing unmatched scalability, provisioning, and data management in a secure process. We are extremely pleased to bring V6 to market.”
