Users can also provision infrastructure for average demand and use Cloud Servers for overflow demand.
High performance computing (HPC) requires enormous compute power. However the compute tasks may not keep the computers busy all the time in which case utilization of hardware is again low. With Cloud Servers, HPC customers can reduce expenses by obtaining compute power only when they need it and returning it back to the Cloud Server general pool when it is not required.
Users can reduce datacenter expenses of hosting applications and delivering it in the ASP (Application Service Provider) or SaaS (Software as a Service) model.
