Intel Select Solutions

Amazon ParallelCluster is available as an Intel Select Solution for simulation and modeling. Configurations are verified to meet the standards set by the Intel HPC Platform Specification, use specific Intel instance types, and are configured to use the Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) networking interface. Amazon ParallelCluster is the first cloud solution to meet the requirements for the Intel Select Solutions program. Supported instance types include c5n.18xlarge, m5n.24xlarge, and r5n.24xlarge. A sample configuration compatible with the Intel Select Solutions standard is provided below.
