Metrocubo: A desktop size supercomputer

Joining MD and Machine Learning in a single workstation

Metrocubo is a highly compact hardware-software solution for running GPU accelerated operations. That includes both molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning problems. Metrocubo GPU hardware delivers the highest teraflops per dollar ratio and offers your organization an efficient entry into the era of desktop high-throughput molecular dynamics simulations and artificial intelligence.

Years of development and thorough testing, yielded the current edition of Metrocubo. Metrocubo, housed by our innovative, compact and cost-effective patent pending GPU chassis, ensures maximum performance at low temperatures and low noise levels, while minimizing space. Loaded with Maxwell GPUs and the latest version of ACEMD, our popular GPU molecular dynamics simulation software, Metrocubo can run at full GPU loads for extended periods of time uninterrupted.

Metrocubo GPU hardware is available for purchase in Europe, Canada and the US.
