15 Feb 2012 Provo - Adaptive Computing is the latest company to join NCSA's Private Sector Programme, which puts the centre's expertise to work on some of the toughest challenges faced by the industry.
NCSA's Private Sector Programme brings the promise of HPC to a broad segment of the market and enables businesses to tap into all the benefits HPC has to offer as well as having access to a wealth of knowledge within the HPC community.
"Adaptive Computing is taking advantage of a partnership category for software developers", stated Merle Giles, leader of NCSA's Private Sector Programme. "We think these partnerships will help develop an important three-way dialogue among software developers, industrial end users, and large HPC providers like NCSA."
NCSA's computing resources, including the iForge system that was designed specifically for industrial use, are a valuable platform for industrial power users to maximize productivity. Adaptive Computing's
Moab intelligence engine is a big part of this collaboration to further accelerate, automate, and self-optimize IT workloads, resources, and services in large, complex heterogeneous computing environments. This partnership will also allow Adaptive Computing to advance its HPC workload management products and services to better serve the industrial market.
"NCSA's Private Sector Partner Programme will allow users access to Adaptive Computing's patented and battle-tested intelligence engine within a real world environment to bench test code that may not have otherwise been so easily accessible", commented Dave Jackson, CTO of Adaptive Computing. "It is our goal to allow the enterprise to better utilize HPC by collaborating with companies like ours to learn how to transform their standard data centre environment into a high performance computing environment."
