DELIVERING A COST-EFFECTIVE HPC SOLUTION INCLUDING IMPLEMENTATION AND TURNING — ISN'T THAT A FIRST?

AvarSYS specializes in combining the highest quality commodity components with an open software stack, integration and tuning with your application, and applying middleware, I/O and storage virtualization to deliver the most complete HPC solution in the industry.

Qualifications:
Our organization has an 18 year history in HPC and HPC visualization. We have a unique combination of senior level background and experience in SGI, Cray, nCube, IBM, HP and most recently Linux Networx product lines. We are dedicated to non-proprietary hardware and open-source software and differentiate our solution with HPC hardware configuration knowledge and most importantly application tuning and a holistic approach to infrastructure integration and management.

What is HPC?
High Performance Computing (HPC) is powerful, flexible and relatively low-cost parallel supercomputers and computer clusters linked together as a single system using interconnects to solve complex data and computational intensive applications as well as complex high productivity computing environments that now includes supporting the ecosystem of software, middleware, storage, networking and infrastructure tools.

Supercomputers have been in existence believe it or not since the 1960’s. Today’s supercomputers are now mostly made up of off the shelf server class microprocessors that are highly-tuned with special interconnects.

Evolution of the Industry:
At AvarSYS, we believe that proprietary clusters are best left in the past as evidenced by the falling business values of proprietary manufacturers such as SGI and Cray who 10 years ago had 94 and 108 respectively of the Top500 Supercomputers and today have 22 and 14 respectively.

As of November of 2007 – the Intel Processor Family represented 71% of the Top500 Supercomputers and AMD 16%. Couple this with Linux having at least 85% of the Operating System Share of the Top500 and you can see a dramatic evolution. While SGI and the like may use Intel processors now, they still add proprietary software and node recognition that does not qualify them as open.

When examining HPC as an I.T. investment, if you factor the ever demanding requirement for lowering the cost of I.T. due to rising administration costs coupled with the fact that proprietary OS is no longer transferable; you can quickly surmise that buying a proprietary system simply is not prudent.
