Computation on Demand®

Parabon's Computation on Demand is a revolutionary method of achieving extreme-scale, high-performance supercomputing performance, without the expense or overhead of purchasing dedicated hardware.

The Frontier Grid Platform, the enabling software powering the Computation on Demand service, harnesses the excess capacity of thousands of computers to deliver a supercomputing service to any networked computer.

Open An Account, Log In and Drive Frontier via the Dashboard

To use the Computation on Demand service, simply open an account. It's fast, easy and free. As a new user, you'll receive credits for free computation that can be used to run sample jobs.

Simply enter your name, email account and create a password. When you log into your new account, you'll have access to a customized Frontier Dashboard, a convenient interface that makes using your account easy. Through the Dashboard, you can easily launch jobs, monitor usage, and learn more about the platform - all from your web browser.

Select or Build Frontier-enabled Applications

You can drive grid-powered web applications using the Frontier Dashboard within a browser or launch grid-powered "rich client" applications from the desktop or console.

Developers can create grid applications with the Frontier SDK and related dev tools or use Frontier Rapids - a powerful integration and execution environment - to get existing codes running quickly. Visit our Dev Center for more information about all the development tools available to make your Frontier experience a positive one.

Set Computing Capacity and Parameters and Launch the Job

Computation on Demand is a pay-per-use service, so you only pay for the capacity you need, when you need it.

Once you've selected the application you want to run, set the computational capacity -- you can use a little or a lot -- and specify the application parameters. Then, launch the job. It couldn't be easier or more affordable! Experience the power of Frontier by running a sample app today.

Enterprise and Data Centers

If you prefer, you can enjoy all these features using your own IT infrastructure. Packaged as Frontier Enterprise, corporations and government agencies can get the same solution as an in-house compute utility. It's secure, OS-agnostic, unobtrusive and comes with a rich set of development tools to facilitate the rapid development of high-performance grid applications.
