CSC to Offer Supercomputing Access

November 07, 2000|Reuters

Computer Sciences Corp. said it would open pay-per-use access to its banks of super-fast supercomputers over the Internet. CSC said the new service would allow supercomputing power on demand to companies that can't afford their own expensive high-performance machines, which typically operate at speeds about 10,000 times faster than a desktop computer. The El Segundo-based firm said the new service would offer access through a Web portal to its existing High Performance Computing. Called e-HPC.com, the service is open to a wide range of software types that a customer might be using. Computer Sciences' shares closed up 19 cents at $70.19 on the NYSE.
