While it is possible to recruit tens of thousands of CPUs (or more) in the cloud, Gigadock and Gigadock Warp within the Orion platform utilize a cost-efficient approach that ensures only necessary instances are running and unused instances are quickly shut down. This approach maximizes cost efficiency, making it an attractive option for those looking to run large-scale docking calculations.
Moreover, the Orion platform has built-in tolerance to instances that may fail or be taken away due to the dynamic nature of Amazon Web Services spot market pricing. In such instances, the pieces of work are retried seamlessly, ensuring that no work is lost or dropped, even at these extreme scales. This means that users can rest assured that their calculations will be completed successfully, without having to worry about the details of managing the cloud infrastructure.
