Archanan is the premier provider of personal, at scale, cloud-based development environments that virtualize and emulate an organization’s production system, thus eliminating organizational bottlenecks in programming development and speeding up time to results. Using Archanan Development Cloud, programmers can develop and test their code on virtualized systems that emulate their organization’s production environment, empowering them to code at scale from any laptop or workstation.
Our vision is to provide access to the transformational benefits that high-performance computers offer to every scientist, business, and student around the world. Our tools empower organizations involved with these large-scale computing environments to experiment with designs, enact productive, “at scale” development practices, and create new, efficient workflows that leverage the cloud for development and testing.
The Archanan Development Cloud helps bridge the gaps that make development on large scale systems cumbersome and expensive. Through the power of cloud-based emulation, Archanan extends the workstation to be a powerful, at scale production system, liberating developers and organizations from traditional inefficient development practices that delay progress and impede results. Using Arcanan’s tools, organizations can enact development practices that streamline workflows, eliminate bottlenecks, and speed time to results. Additionally, Archanan’s tools enable organizations to test-drive applications on large scale systems and architectures, before committing resources to these expensive systems.
