Large Scale Computing Ecosystem

Technical Advice and System Solutions

When  planning for the installation of a large computer system, the final goal is to have an efficient and cost effective ecosystem of hardware, software, and processes that will streamline the search for solutions to existing problems, while remaining flexible enough to be useful for as-yet unforeseen processing requirements. There is no absolute measure for what a “large” system is, it will depend on the current state of your environment. Whether 50 cores seem large to you, or 5000, we can help guide the process from assessing your needs through operating the new installation.

Since we don’t sell hardware or software we are not confined to single vendor solutions and are able to help with non-biased advice on the best technologies, hardware, software, and techniques to utilize.

  • At the planning stage:
    • we can help with needs assessment
    • requirements gathering
    • information for project budgets and business case documents
    • system design
    • storage requirements
    • requirements for backups
    • interaction with vendors for proposal requirements
  • For the acquisition stage we can help with the details
    • prepare hardware and software estimates for new system
    • Interaction with vendors on acquisition details
  • At the implementation stage we can help with the set-up and configuration
    • Interaction vendors for warranty issue
    • OS and application software installation and configuration
  • For the operation stage we can be part of the ongoing support or we can help with providing training for self sufficiency

We want to achieve the computational environment you require to reach your goals.
