Who we are

cloudnumbers.com provides researchers and companies with the resources to perform high performance calculations in the cloud. We help our customers to fight epidemics, develop highly advanced drugs and manage financial risk. Our aim is to change the way research collaboration is done today by bringing together scientists and businesses from all over the world on a single platform. cloudnumbers.com is a Berlin based international high-tech startup striving for enabling everyone to benefit from the High Performance Computing (HPC) related advantages of the cloud. We regard reducing the difficulty of accessing the pooled computational power and abolishing the need for initial infrastructure investments as the key challenges in achieving our mission.

What we do

We pursue our goals by using the innovative potential of cloud computing. Leveraging the power of several pooled computer capacities and providing these on-demand via the Internet allows for a more efficient capacity utilization and highly elevated computational power.

The cloud exhibits the possibility to speed up cumbersome calculations performed with applications like the well-known open-source statistics program R (www.r-project.org), as well as C / C++ or Python. Additionally, the cloud’s characteristics predestine it for being the optimal mean for collaborative data sharing. Cooperation of project members, academics or even business networks thus is facilitated in an unprecedented way with regard to HPC calculations.

User created knowledge databases as well as access to the most prominent public data resources take the collaboration and cooperation potential to yet another level and scale. All these features will be integrated into the safe and efficient platform solution available on a pay-as-you-go basis at cloudnumbers.com.

How you can benefit

Our platform provides decisive advantages:

  • turn fixed into variable costs
  • pay only for the capacity you need
  • be released from ongoing technological obsolescence and continuous maintenance costs
  • accelerated your calculations through parallel processing and great computing capacity
  • enter the cloud using an intuitive and user friendly platform
  • share your results worldwide
