HPC Hardware Upgrade Consultation and Demo Announced by Nor-Tech
In addition to offering a consultation with Nor-Tech's HPC experts, the company maintains a demo cluster with a long list of available applications listed on the webpage.
Nor-Tech Executive Vice President Jeff Olson said, "The demo cluster is an excellent opportunity to see how much faster current applications will run on a cluster and also to test out applications that you may be considering.."
A recent Intel-sponsored study of IT professionals concluded that, while capital expense is always a concern when considering a major technology upgrade, a reduction in ongoing operating expenses driven by the upgrade is even more important. A NASA study came to the same conclusion.
Nor-Tech's clients concur. Here's what a recent client had to say: "The real key is how fast we can get quotes to the customer. You can lose a bid by not getting a quote in quickly. Now, with a cluster, we can respond to our customers in a fraction of the time it used to take. It has definitely had a bottom line effect on our business." Read the case study.
While software cost can be a concern with a hardware upgrade, Nor-Tech's engineers obviate it through expert integration of leading-edge job schedulers. This means hardware, software and associated licenses can be maintained at nearly 100% utilization around the clock. Schedulers will also report underutilization of licenses and identify opportunities to reduce the license count.
For hardware upgrades, Nor-Tech, an Intel Titanium Partner and an Intel Data Center Specialist, is spotlighting Intel Xeon processors. These processors feature:
Nor-Tech is on CRN's list of the top 40 Data Center Infrastructure Providers along with IBM, Oracle, Dell, and Supermicro and is also a member of Hyperion Research's prestigious HPC Technical Computing Advisory Panel. The company is a complete high performance computer solution provider for 2 recent Nobel Physics Award-contending/
