Searchlight Scientific Announces Details of Their HPC2(TM) (High Performance Cloud Computing) Service

June 9, 2011 - ATLANTA, GA

Searchlight Scientific, a wholly owned subsidiary of Searchlight Solutions Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: SLLN), a technology venture holding company, unveiled the details of their High Performance Cloud Computing HPC2 Service. Searchlight Scientifics' sales effort will be aimed at Fortune 500 companies and various industries including but not limited to, fire simulation, video rendering, bio-tech, military and university research.

High-performance computing (HPC) is the use of parallel processing for running advanced application programs efficiently, reliably and quickly. The most common users of HPC systems are scientific researchers, engineers and academic institutions. Some government agencies, particularly the military, also rely on HPC for complex applications. High-performance systems often use custom-made components in addition to so-called commodity components. As demand for processing power and speed grows, HPC will likely interest businesses of all sizes, particularly for transaction processing and data warehouses.

As specialists in the HPC field, Searchlight Scientific subsidiary Linux Labs has been building HPC systems for over seven years. Their clients include many Universities and Government agencies. Linux Labs has perfected the hardware design and software required to achieve the highest level of efficiency for their industry. Linux Labs is now building their state-of-the-art HPC systems and is making them available through a Cloud Computing or Cluster-On-Demand Model." Linux Labs "Cluster-On-Demand" or High Performance Cloud Computing (HPC2) is an effective way to obtain reliable, scalable computing power for network services and compute-intensive applications. Since clusters have a high initial cost of ownership, including space, power conditioning, and cooling equipment, leasing or sharing access to a common cluster is an attractive solution when demands vary over time. Shared clusters offer economies of scale and more effective use of resources by multiplexing.

With Linux Labs' HPC2 service, clients can lease as much CPU power as they need when they need it. If larger calculations are needed, but not enough to justify upgrading or buying a cluster, Linux Labs can provide the right solution. Linux Labs offers clients the ability to lease an entire dedicated cluster including setup with client specified software or to lease a virtual cluster. Linux Labs will help clients choose the right capacity on the cluster, set up the initial configuration and make sure programs and solvers run properly on the leased cluster. If more time is needed, Linux Labs can easily extend the term of the lease. Each node in a leased cluster is a physical machine standing and running a Linux Labs controlled data center unless The Client has requested the use of a virtual or petitioned cluster.
