Streamline adds SiCortex to portfolio

by Stuart Wilson, Friday 7 March 2008

UK-based high performance computing (HPC) systems and software reseller Streamline has added SiCortex to its solutions portfolio. SiCortex offers compact, low power Linux clusters. Under the terms of the reseller agreement, Streamline will sell SiCortex’s family of ultra compact, high performance Linux systems in the UK.

“We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the most advanced high performance computing technology,” said John Taylor, chief technology officer for Streamline. “SiCortex’s combination of dramatically reduced power usage and industry-leading performance enables us to offer a compelling alternative to our customers.”

Streamline claims that it is now the UK’s leading provider of HPC clusters and services. With specialist knowledge of operating systems (including Linux, Microsoft and Unix), end-user applications and cluster middleware, Streamline offers integrated compute, storage and visualisation solutions. Streamline reckons that it reduces the total cost of owning an HPC capability by offering pre-qualified commodity hardware, fault-tolerant system designs, professional management tools and first-class system support.

“We are seeing increasing customer acceptance of our groundbreaking approach to high performance computing as we enter new markets and expand our product line to include the SC072 and SC1458,” said SiCortex CEO Dr. John Mucci. “Working with a leading HPC provider such as Streamline is another important step in the growth of our company.”

Dr. Richard Groves, COO at Streamline Computing, added: “At Streamline, we recognize that low power, high performance computing systems, as developed by SiCortex, fill a growing need in the HPC space as cost and competition for power, space and cooling increases. The SiCortex platform is also an ideal solution for parallel software developers who need desktop and office-based supercomputers to ensure that their applications can scale to large numbers of processors on production systems.”

“We are very pleased to be able to offer SiCortex’s competitive solutions alongside our existing product portfolio. By addressing the total cost of cluster ownership, we believe we can satisfy a growing need for more efficient high performance computing systems by offering SiCortex systems,” he added.

In October 2007 SiCortex announced that it has entered into an agreement with MEGWARE, a leading European high performance computing systems integrator, to sell SiCortex’s family of ultra compact, high performance Linux systems to the European market. MEGWARE distributes SiCortex’s products in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland and the Czech Republic.
