AWS High Performance Computing (HPC) Competency Partners Are Fueling Fast, Secure, and Cost-Effective Innovation

We are excited to introduce the new AWS High Performance Computing (HPC) Competency featuring AWS Partners with deep technical expertise and proven customer success.

These trusted AWS Partners provide technology offerings in areas such as high performance engineering simulation solvers, HPC workload management, high throughput computing, and foundational HPC technology.

To help customers run the most compute-intensive workloads across industry verticals, Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers an integrated suite of services that provide everything needed to quickly and easily build and manage HPC clusters in the cloud.

These workloads span the traditional HPC applications—such as genomics, computational chemistry, financial risk modeling, computer aided engineering, weather prediction, and seismic imaging—as well as emerging applications like machine learning, deep learning, and autonomous driving.

The AWS Competency Program is designed to validate and promote AWS Partners in specialized areas across industry, use case, and workload. These AWS Partners are vetted and validated against a high bar to achieve the AWS Competency designation, giving customers’ confidence in choosing validated AWS Partners to team up with.


Driving Innovation and Customer Success

AWS HPC Competency Partners focus on the important aspects of HPC in the cloud, including security, cost management, and performance. They are uniquely positioned to help customers innovate faster and become more agile and flexible while controlling costs.

In this video, learn how AWS HPC Competency Partner Ronin teamed up the University of Sydney’s Wildlife Genomics Group to reduce genomics data analysis time from 10 days to six hours with AWS. The group studies non-model species to better understand how they can protect wildlife animal populations in Australia.
