High-performance computing (HPC) is a term used to describe high-performance computing. Recently, it has become an essential element of enterprise transformation as well as a key to enterprise innovation. However, based on the research statistics, it is found that when enterprises build HPC, up to 70% of their time is spent on hardware calibration, while only 30% of researchers' time is spent on core business; this situation not only causes the core team to spend too much time understanding software and hardware; it is more likely to cause significant delays in implementing the transformation.

To assist the MedGenome medical institution in India in improving the computing power required for MedGenome's research in rare diseases, Parkinson's disease, and other fields, GARAOTUS has designed a genome analysis solution based on flexible and efficient computing power.
As human genetic analysis, vaccines, and new drugs become more complex, so do the processes and data volumes that researchers need to process and analyze. The lack of visualization, modularization, and integration of data analysis and processing. There will be a variety of difficulties in importing and integrating data, and it will not be able to effectively promote research.
HPC is the key to catalyzing innovation in enterprises, and the infrastructure of HPC includes computing nodes, networks, and storage devices, which are connected in series to form a cluster. In this process, users must execute programs based on their experience, and professional software is carried out on the server. Operation and storage, are the basis for the construction of industrial development and progress.
HPC technology can assist enterprises to conduct simulation tests before product development, which not only saves the waste of resources caused by model verification failures but also has long-term benefits for improving the experience of end users. In recent years, with the addition of cloud services, AI, and other fields, HPC can fully integrate various technologies, expand the scope of support, and better meet the needs of users. HPC is a support system for the sustainable development of an enterprise.
The CRONUS platform provided by GARAOTUS allows researchers to easily perform data analysis and information storage using a visual interface by dragging and dropping without programming. At the same time, data can also be easily exchanged and collaborated between organizations. Through a unified platform and flexible permission design, the overall process and research results are easier to manage, and it is also convenient for the reproduction and reuse of research results, thereby allowing non-IT programs Researchers with backgrounds can lower the threshold of research and use research information more flexibly.
The biggest feature of the team service is that in addition to being able to visualize the process, the original translation of complex instructions is replaced by a simple UI, which greatly simplifies the process. On the other hand, all writing records have footprints, which can easily find out the results of each operation, not only will there be no faults due to personnel handover, and there will be no repeated input of instructions. The platform will record the time of each operation and the number of resources used, which allows enterprises to have better resource allocation considerations in decision-making.
GARAOTUS aims to work together to go international by forming alliances with strategic partners in the industrial fields. Meanwhile, one of the developments, the Genomics Analytics Process as a Service (GAPaaS) on CRONUS, has also been adopted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a world-class genomic medicine laboratory in India for next-generation sequencing analysis. The GAPaaS supports researchers to accelerate the discovery process during epidemics, and the HPC power cloud service platform overcomes the huge threshold resistance users experienced to entering HPC computing power in the past.
For GARAOTUS, they need to redefine HPC and make “computing power” become the new energy for enterprises active in the transformation process. Based on HPC technology, these should extend upward to build application platform layers in various industries, seamlessly connect computing power resources, and create new bus.
The platform advantages of CRONUS include adopting the underlying architecture of HPC technology, extending upwards to the service layer, and providing visual services of GAPaaS (Genomics-Analytics-Process-as-a-Service). GARAOTUS will continue to work with ecosystems in various fields. Partners provide services, including precision medicine and atmospheric services that have been invested in the past. The next stage will focus on assisting the R&D process of semiconductor chips, the application of fully automatic smart manufacturing, and the application of numerical methods in financial high-performance computing, etc., to help various industries and high-speed computing.
This year (2022), GARAOTUS has been selected as one of the top 30 companies in the world by Global Business Leaders Magazine. Besides, GARAOTUS wins the Taiwan Technology Excellence Award for Computing - Data Center at the Asian Technology Excellence Awards 2022 with its products and services featuring a fully integrated architecture of HPC. The report pointed out that GARAOTUS provides diverse and inclusive HPC solutions and covers the application of many open-source technologies. Over the years, the team has played a pivotal role in the open-source organization community, and was awarded the IIA International Innovation Award by Enterprise Asia in 2021, the first team to receive this award for HPC technology. In the future, the team will continue to expand the solution portfolio based on HPC technology, build application platform layers for various industries, so that various industries can seamlessly connect the "computing power" provided by HPC, and accelerate the realization of digital transformation.
