A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, whereas a cluster is only as strong as its software. With nearly limitless options available, choosing the right software can make the difference between an unmanageable mess with poor performance and a streamlined, reliable high-performance tool. Our expert team constantly tests and evaluates new software and its interaction with hardware so you do not end up being the test bed.

Customer testimonial

"By the way, Jason has been a great help. The testing would not have happened without him. Not only did he install MPI for me but emacs as well. He deserves a raise. Thanks again for all you have done. " -- Buff M. at SAIC
