Former Linux Networx & SGI engineer to offer system administration services
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 24 -- HPC Integrators, a newly formed cluster computing professional services company, announced today the availability of its system installation, remote system health management and performance tuning services to help organizations with medium to small sized cluster systems.
Formed by high performance computing (HPC) and cluster computing veteran, Nate Fuhriman, HPC Integrators provides customers with complete system set-up and administration services for clusters as small as two nodes up to 256. The company's services are designed to enhance existing technical staff, or provide needed expertise to organizations without administrative staff.
"Cluster computing is complex and ever changing -- because of this, it is so valuable to have access to someone with Nate Fuhriman's experience to manage the integration and support of a system today," said HPC Integrators customer Todd Bone, CEO of XS International. "Nate's vast experience with clusters, visualization and Infiniband technologies has greatly increased our ability to provide systems integration, service and support to our clients."
HPC Integrators was created to bring senior-level HPC system administration services to customers at an affordable price, as low as $1,000 per month for remote system health management. HPC Integrators ensures customers' cluster investment is healthy, backed-up and performing at a high-level.
"In this ever-changing world of high-performance computing, Nate exhibits a deep knowledge about a variety of cluster configurations & always seems to know exactly how to configure a system and/or to solve the problem," said Herb Riley, R-Systems CEO and customer of HPC Integrators. "It provides such a peace-of-mind to have someone as seasoned as Nate working with our systems."
As one of the first professional systems integrators for HPC cluster systems, Fuhriman has worked on landmark systems such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's MCR cluster system, as well as countless smaller systems for organizations like The Boeing Company.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
