Tokyo, Japan, April 2nd, 2019- Cloud HPC company XTREME-D today announced the official release of XTREME-Stargate™ G2, next gen cloud supercomputing for AI with Intel’s latest CPU.


XTREME-Stargate™ announced last October has been acquiring users among commercial companies, national laboratories and in academia. It provides High Performance computing and graphics processing and is cost effective for both simulation and data analysis.
XTREME-Stargate™ G2 has been enhanced to meet increasing users’ demand for High Performance Computing.

Highlights of XTREME-Stargate™ G2

1. Incorporates Intel’s latest CPU architecture
XTREME-Stargate incorporates Intel’s newly released CPU, 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors (Cascade Lake) .
With 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors optimized for AI, users will be able to drive life science and Reinforcement Learning studies. XTREME-Stargate™ IaaS is an ideal platform for calculations with large data sets and heavy logic.

2. Commercial software available through container technology
Guassian16 and GaussView6 which are in high-demand by customers in life science industry are now available in XTREME-Stargate™ G2. The monthly subscription of Intel Parallel Studio provided by XTREME-DNA will continue to be provided by XTREME-Stargate.

3. Pre-installed large datasets
Public data sets necessary for AI / drug discovery such as GenBank by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) are pre-installed in XTREME-Stargate™ G2. Users can easily access and leverage biopolymers of proteins and three-dimensional structure database into their calculations.

XTREME-Stargate™ G2 service is advantageous by providing comprehensive latest hardware, software and data sets which allow users to process their workload immediately. Also, by including Singularity, users can use not only commercial applications but also bring in their workload as BYOE (Bring Your Own Environment) jobs.


XTREME DNA™, fully-automated unmanned service for deploying, monitoring, and managing a virtual supercomputer on a public cloud, will not be sold anymore and its feature-set will be merged into XTREME-Stargate™ G2 for scaling-out to public clouds.
