A HPCaaS cloud platform providing an all-in-one high-performance public computing service

Creat ClusterContact Sales

Based on Alibaba Cloud infrastructure, Alibaba Cloud Elastic High Performance Computing (E-HPC) is an end-to-end public cloud service. E-HPC provides individual users, education and research institutions, and public institutions with a fast, elastic, and secure cloud compute platform that interconnects with Alibaba Cloud products.

E-HPC Pricing

E-HPC is billed for the following items: ECS instances, E-HPC service, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and external Internet traffic of logon nodes.

NOTE: If you have a large cluster, you can contact us by submitting a ticket in order to purchase at a discounted rate.

Cost of ECS Instances

When you activate an E-HPC cluster, each node in the cluster is an ECS instance and the price varies depending on the selected ECS instance hardware configuration. When you create an E-HPC cluster, purchase of Alibaba Cloud ECS is automatically completed. You don't need to prepare ECS instances in advance. If you are entitled to a discount for ECS, you can enjoy the same discount when buying ECS instances for E-HPC activation.

Cost of E-HPC Service

E-HPC provides the multi-dimensional management of your cluster, scales in or scales out the instances to meet your demand, and integrates with the features of OpenAPI, monitor and alert, O&M tools, and automatic server O&M in the background. The charge is calculated by core-hours of users. If the total number of cluster cores of a user in a region is smaller than 200 (vCPU), no charge is collected. If the total number is greater than 200 (vCPU), $0.003 US is charged for each extra core-hour.

Cost of NAS Space

NAS is used as the shared storage space for all nodes in an E-HPC cluster. For pricing details, please refer to NAS product documents.

Cost for External Network Traffic of the Logon Nodes

After an E-HPC cluster is created, logon nodes are bound with EIPs and allocated public bandwidth by default. Traffic is billed by usage per hour. Fees are only charged for outbound traffic. Inbound traffic is free.

For example, if you use 10GB of outbound public traffic in an hour, the charge is 10GB × price per GB ($ amount per hour). Traffic fees vary from region to region.

Total Cost for E-HPC cluster

The total cost of an E-HPC cluster is determined by the total price displayed on the price calculator when you create the cluster.

Easy to use
E-HPC provides flexible configuration options and allows you to create ECS or EGS computing clusters with ease. The service is ready for use on purchase.
Auto scaling
E-HPC dynamically increases or reduces computing nodes in the cluster. The performance is not limited by the capacity of a single physical server.
The service provides highly secured multi-tenant segregation to meet high availability and data security requirements.
E-HPC can be seamlessly integrated with other products and services of Alibaba Cloud through the user console.


Common Scenarios

HPCaaS cloud computing platform

Flexible cluster building and auto scaling

You can use Alibaba Cloud ECS, EGS, VPC, and NAS instances to build parallel computing clusters and dynamically adjust the nodes and the storage of the clusters as needed.


Instant service availability

Once you create an E-HPC cluster instance, the ECS, EGS, NAS, and related RDS and OSS services immediately become available with the cluster.

Auto scaling

You can create clusters according to the early cluster scale and dynamically scale the number of clusters when running code. You are not affected by the limits set by on-premises physical clusters.

Logical segregation

The data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and data segregation are secured by the native ECS, EGS, and VPC features of Alibaba Cloud.
