The events were supported by key partners of Boston including Supermicro, AMD, and Mellanox Technologies, a supplier of end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions.
Boston also announced remote access to its state-of-the-art Boston Labs facilities for businesses in South Africa wanting to test the latest technologies, solutions and services that Boston can offer.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Limited, stated: "There are vast opportunities for businesses to grow through the recognition and utilisation of HPC in South Africa. With over 25 years of global operations globally, Boston has the facilities to support this growth through our comprehensive solutions and services. I am delighted to partner with CHPC, who, like us, are committed to increasing the realisation of the need for HPC as a route to business evolution within the private sector."
Dr. Happy Sithole, Director, CHPC, added: "As high-performance computing (HPC) is still in its infancy in South Africa, we are pleased to welcome Boston as a leading HPC services and system integrator to join the South African HPC market. I look forward to engaging with Boston's new South Africa team to ensure the best possible products and services are available to the flourishing HPC industry. I am also happy that Boston will be a key partner at our annual CHPC conference later this year."
