What It's Used For
Thinking about buying a Linux cluster? Save your money. Use Frontier.
Nowhere is computational speed more important than on Wall Street, where seconds can mean millions of dollars gained or lost.
Buying high-performance computing (HPC) hardware is no longer the answer. Why put up with the capital cost, hyper-depreciation, underutilization, and increased power/space/cooling issues? Your competitors have found a better way to get fast, affordable computational capacity-and so can you.
Simply install the enterprise version of our Frontier® Grid Platform on your existing infrastructure. You'll tap the excess capacity of servers, desktops, even VMs, and get instant HPC capacity with no hardware hassles. With Frontier you can:
- Run simulations faster.
- Predict low probability events with greater accuracy.
- Aggregate unused capacity across your data center.
- Reduce hardware budgets and lower the total cost of ownership (TCO).
- Use the online Parabon Computation Grid for supplemental capacity and to achieve Disaster Recovery and Continuance of Operations (DRCOP) compliance.
Parabon truly understands the computational demands of the financial world. In fact, it was the need for computation in this field that inspired the creation of Parabon. We've made sure that once you've installed Frontier, it's easy to scale new or existing applications.
