With its network of state-of-the-art Data Centers, Bull has built up a unique expertise in hosting and operating critical business applications.
Leveraging this know-how and infrastructure, Bull can offer a range of HPC hosting services, and has developped its own HPC on-demand solution: extreme factory. Because in Extreme Computing too, organizations have fluctuating processing power needs, or would rather focus on their core activity rather than administrate their HPC system.
Bull has joined forces with leading software vendors to create extreme factory: the only on-line portal where you can access your entire High-Performance Computing environment in one place. Use it to directly manage your projects on line, every step of the way – from data integration to visualizing the fi nal results – using the applications of your choice.
Totally developed, hosted and managed by Bull, extreme factory delivers total compatibility with all standard computing codes, total confidentiality for all your data, and total access to all the available power of the very latest systems and components.
Based on bullx supercomputers, extreme factory allows you to access as many processing cores as you want. And you can even specify the technical environment (resource allocation mode, processor family, job scheduler, type of storage, network technologies, network isolation levels) and the type of service you have access to (IaaS, Infrastructure as a Service or SaaS, Software as a Service).

SG CIB, Société Générale Corporate and Investment Banking, turned to Bull to get both the performance they needed and great flexibility of use. Bull hosts SG CIB's HPC systems, but also provides the necessary infrastructure to absorb extra demands and respond to peaks in workload.
You too can work with Bull to put together a customized solution that is perfectly suited to your needs, while taking full advantage of Bull's shared, industrial-scale structure:
