Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Edwood Ocasio for this link. ]

"Ken: PiCloud offers the easiest way to utilize the cloud for compute-intensive applications; more specifically, applications in scientific computing, high-performance computing, and batch processing. With only a couple lines of code, scientists, developers, and engineers on our platform can leverage thousands of cores of computational power on-demand.

"Our goal is to make computing power a utility for scientists in the same way that electricity is for modern society: available to everyone, seemingly infinite in quantity, and readily accessible with a flip of a switch. We achieve this by being a serverless cloud. In other words, our users each get the power of a supercomputer at their fingertips without having to design, provision, or administer any servers."
