New NAG Service Helps Customers Maximize Cloud ROI

NAG Launches Cloud HPC Migration Service, Uses Deep HPC Expertise and Partnerships with Big Three Cloud Providers to Help Customers Optimize for Cost 

Oxford, UK: NAG announces a Cloud HPC Migration Service, designed to meet the growing need for deep HPC expertise in cloud migration. With this service, NAG combines high performance computing experience with new cost-performance optimization approaches to help users adapt complex HPC workloads to the cloud. A registered partner of Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google CloudNAG will support customers in achieving optimal cost-to-solution.

The reasons for moving to the public cloud are numerous - access to a wider variety of hardware, reduced CAPEX, and less on-site support, to name a few. HPC has been slow to make the move, but last year Hyperion research noted that cloud adoption had reached a “tipping point”, with users estimating that up to 40% of HPC workloads could move to the cloud[1]. 

"We’re seeing a lot of clients decide that now is the right time to move HPC workloads to the cloud," said Adrian Tate, CEO of NAG. "The access to increased variety of hardware is a great thing, but it can amplify inefficiencies which will eradicate your cost advantage. With decades of real HPC experience, up-to-date cloud credentials, and deep partnerships with the big three cloud providers, we understand the overall HPC cloud migration problem in a way that others can't."

NAG’s Cloud HPC Migration Service is provided stand-alone or through the cloud partner networks of Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google Cloud. 

Nidhi Chappell, Head of HPC & AI Products at Microsoft Azure said “Microsoft Azure HPC is a uniquely focused set of cloud solutions purpose-built for the demands of HPC. Partners like NAG, who bring genuine expertise in both HPC and cloud, are immensely valuable in helping our customers make a smooth and successful migration of their HPC workloads to the cloud.”
