LAWRENCE, Kansas, April 19 — Atipa Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance computing and storage solutions, today announced that it received the Intel Technology Partner award for HPC Technical Solution. Atipa Technologies was honored for its streamlined high-performance computing deployments for the Department of Energy using Intel technologies. The award was presented at the 2018 Intel Partner Connect conference in Washington, D.C.
Atipa Technologies architected an extremely cost effective 924-node computing cluster for a U.S. Naval Nuclear Laboratory. Atipa evaluated the cost/performance ratio for a wide range of Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 family and chose to build the system using the Intel Xeon processor E5-2683 v4 and the Intel Compute Module HNS2600KP Family. During system testing and burn-in, Atipa went the extra mile to ensure all nodes individually achieved SPECfp2006 rates within two percent of the average, giving the Naval Nuclear Laboratory greater predictability and reliability across nodes throughout the entire cluster. The entire system was turned on and accepted within seven business days after the start of the on-site installation. The final optimized system performance surpassed the minimum requirements by 15 percent while staying within budget.
“Our engineers are among the most thorough and meticulous in the business. Their passion for technology and drive for perfection allow us to deliver the highest quality HPC systems and exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Dana Chang, vice president, at Atipa Technologies.
“Intel appreciates the work that Atipa Technologies has done in finding new and innovative ways to use Intel technology to improve the deployment process for high performance computing solutions,” said Jason Kimrey, general manager, U.S. Channel Scale and Partners at Intel. “We congratulate them on their successes and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
