High Performance
Compute (HPC)

Get In Touch

High Performance Compute (HPC) involves the use of clusters of processors working in parallel to process large datasets and solve complex problems at high speed.

Tailored for Financial Services such as Insurance, Banking, Investments, Capital Markets, as well as Life Sciences, Energy, Automotive and Aerospace and Weather and Climate modelling.

What is HPC/ HTC?

High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Throughput Computing (HTC) involves the use of clusters of processors, working in parallel, to process large datasets and solve complex problems at high speed.
Typical on-premises HPC challenges include; long execution times, capex and capacity planning, high TCO and maintenance burdens, and low agility and innovation.
The growth in compute capacity and services on AWS means that HPC workloads, traditionally running on on-premises grids can now run more effectively and at lower cost on cloud.


  • Outcompete Traditional Setups: Our HPC solutions consistently outperform on-premises clusters, giving you a competitive edge in your computational tasks. You are no longer limited by fixed-capacity clusters, outdated tech, and resource contention.
  • Elasticity and Scalability: With AWS, every workload can leverage its own dedicated resources. Run anything from hundreds to millions of parallel processes, for calculations, simulations, or any demanding computational task in insurance, investments and asset management.
  • Risk Mitigation: Evolve and adapt without the concerns of on-premises clusters becoming obsolete or underutilised. Run your workload in our HPC Lab to evaluate the best price/performance of technology options before embarking on a transformative migration.
  • Cost Flexibility: Gain transparent insights into your HPC cost structures. Benefit from optimised low-cost Spot instances, run multiple workloads in parallel, explore what-if scenarios, and only pay for what you use.
  • Insights: We implement user-facing dashboards for insight into clusters, jobs and workloads. Our observability solutions give engineering teams full insight into operational health.
  • Compliance: We guide you to a solution that reduces the effort of security and regulatory compliance by taking strategic advantage of the AWS Shared Responsibility Model.

The right technology for the job

HPC and HTC workloads have different technology needs depending on the industry, performance goals, integration requirements and available skills.

We support multiple platforms, including:

  • EC2, ParallelCluster, Elastic Fabric Adapter: Experience incredibly flexible yet powerful computing capacities and enhanced networking capabilities.
  • AWS Batch: Reduce infrastructure maintenance with managed scheduling and execution across EC2 instances and containers.
  • HTC Grid: Achieve exceptionally high throughput with a balance of serverless orchestration and Kubernetes scalability.
  • ECS, Step Functions, SQS, Lambda and Fargate: Dive into serverless computing for tasks of any magnitude, for instant scale and reduced complexity.
  • Commercial HPC Software and Models: Seamlessly integrate established software solutions with AWS’s on-demand infrastructure.
  • Hybrid Models: Need a blend of cloud and on-premises? We cater to hybrid solutions, ensuring you get the best of both worlds.
