Storm on Demand has released a 32-core managed cloud server.

The rentable hardware, which has 96GB of RAM, 32-cores and one terabyte of attached storage, was made available worldwide on Wednesday.

"A [typical] use is for testing and research," a Storm sales representative told ZDNet UK. The company had encountered interest from educational institutions that wanted to use the service for scientific research, they said.

Storm is a brand of Liquid Web Inc. It operates three datacentres in Michigan, US. Each instance of the rentable server is capable of 3.3Gbps of writes and 4.0Gbps of reads. The server is available for rent from $1.37 (£0.85) per hour.

The largest number of CPU cores available on Amazon Web Services' global infrastructure cloud is 33.5 for a cluster compute instance.
