About Scala

Scala Computing is a venture-backed, early-stage startup based out of NYC working to disrupt the traditional High-Performance Computing market. Scala’s mission is to enable all organizations to leverage the power of Big Compute easily, cost-effectively, and efficiently. We believe that our customer base which includes engineers, researchers, and developers in diverse industries should focus on the science behind their applications – not on the compute environment.


Scala Computing removes the high barrier to entry in accessing today’s most advanced technologies. We give our customers the keys to a secure, on-demand, and hyper-scalable cloud-based supercomputer that is tailored to each application they run. Our low-cost, easy-to-use platform satisfies the infrastructure and compute requirements for entire classes of applications, including Big Data and real-time analytics, machine learning and A.I., and parallel computing, among other complex models or simulations.


Put quite simply, we built the universal platform for all things Big Compute. We enable organizations to start adopting the critical technologies needed to succeed in today’s competitive landscape, all in a cost-efficient and seamless fashion. It has been built by engineers for engineers with one thing in mind: to serve as the engine of innovation for our users.
