Scala Computing, a NYC-based Cloud HPC (High-Performance Computing) Platform provider, raised $5M in funding.
The round was led by HardHill Trust.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development of its HPC platform for its three core markets:
– Weather Research & Water Modeling,
– Manufacturing/Engineering with CAE/EDA driven applications, and
– Data Center Infrastructure Simulation.
Led by Shiv Kumar (CEO), Rob Zecha (COO) and Sam Rahman (CTO), and co-founder Arjun Kapoor Scala Computing provides Cloud High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Compute on-demand platforms for a wide array of use cases and application profiles across both open source and third-party licensed software, with security, policy management, and access control provisions, which enable engineers, researchers, and developers across industries to focus on their applications, not the compute environment.
Scala’s roster of clients across all of its three in-focus market segments include several Fortune 500 enterprises (ranging from global leaders in manufacturing to social media giants and networking equipment manufacturers) and Government entities including the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP).
