Rescale Launches First AI-enabled secure computing Cloud Platform with New FedRAMP Authorization

Fremont, CA: Rescale customers put rockets into space, create supersonic transports and develop new lines of medicine on our platform. Were honored to partner with federal agencies to help make the world a safer place.” comments Ernest de Leon, Director of Rescales Security and Trust Office. Rescale, the industry leader in high performance computing developed for the cloud to speed engineering innovation, has been granted FedRAMP Moderate Authority To Operate. The Rescale ScaleX Government platform is the first and only hybrid cloud HPC platform to achieve this compliance certification, which the U.S. Department of Energy calls Moderate Impact Level. The FedRAMP Moderate level and its security implications permit more U.S. Federal Agencies to safely perform secure mission-critical computing workloads on demand.

“Rescale empowers engineers in federal agencies, helping them run their most complicated workloads faster and in a more secure manner, with higher performance and automated workflows integrated with more than 850 commercial and open source engineering and scientific applications,” adds Ernest de Leon.

According to Grand View Research, government organizations comprise the largest and fastest-growing segment of HPC market adoption (which is projected to reach $53.6 billion by 2027). The ScaleX Government platform from Rescale enables agencies to securely use both their cloud and on-premises HPC workloads to reduce costs, accelerate innovation, accelerate computer simulations, and enable the science and engineering communities to leverage the latest specialized architectures for machine learning and artificial intelligence without making massive capital investments.

FedRAMP is a United States government program that provides a standardized method for security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud-based products and services. By decreasing the cost and duration of risk management requirements, the program enables government agencies to adopt cloud-based services such as Rescale ScaleX Government swiftly and safely. The solutions authorized by the GSA FedRAMP PMO are subjected to a comprehensive compliance evaluation to guarantee they meet and maintain the government's stringent security and data management standards.

Gartner reports that interest in the FedRAMP program is growing among state and local agencies, tribal and non-US governments, firms in regulated industries and the defense industry, as well as non-profit and educational institutions.
