About the BIL

Access to the BIL is on a first-come, first-served basis, depending upon availability. For security purposes, only one client may run workloads in the BIL at a time.

Before your testing begins, the Penguin Computing team prepares the BIL with your software stack and secures the system for your privacy and protection. When running workloads in the lab, clients have access to Penguin Computing HPC and storage experts, who will work with you throughout your testing process, ensuring the lab is fine-tuned to your needs.

After the your testing is complete, the Penguin Computing team will completely wipe the system, ensuring none of your data can be seen by future BIL users.
