Continue Business as Usual, Immediately After a Disaster

Whether just a minor outage or a complete disaster recovery (DR), the most important success factor is having a clearly defined plan. The Rescale ScaleX platform provides just that: a turnkey platform that can pick up all of your on-premise HPC capacity at a moment’s notice. In fact, many customers choose Rescale as their default DR provider, realize the flexibility and scale advantages of pay-as-you-go compute during testing, then transition their production workloads to the platform.

There are numerous disruptive threats that could occur at any time and negatively impact the on-premise HPC business process. These range from power loss, thermal instability, physical site failures, platform worker failures, platform web failures, database failures, and build server failures.

The Rescale ScaleX platform enables users to:

Multicloud Approach

Transition on-premise HPC tasks to the cloud immediately


Connect backup cloud resources directly to compute nodes

Unlimited Growth

Expand to the exact capacity needed without over or under-provisioning of recovery resources
