Commercial Sector Customers

Our strong heritage in HPC in Universities and Research Councils has enabled us to take our knowledge, skills and expertise of high performance server clusters, Infrastructure as a Service, storage clusters and file management systems and evolve it for non-traditional market sectors. 

We have successful storage cluster integrations at a number of private sector organisations including Landmark Solutions, Tecnica, Rushes, Tag and Smoke & Mirrors. Read our Smoke & Mirrors Case Study

We have also signed a partnership with City Banking services specialist, MThree Consulting, which will use our high performance computing experience to optimise trading floor infrastructures and decrease system latency.

We also offer a Compute on Demand service for private and public sector customers called enCORE. The enCORE service provides a highly scalable compute facility that can be accessed on a pay-as-you-go basis via the internet. This removes the need for data centre space, power, cooling, or in recruiting and retaining the skills to implement and maintain your own cluster.  Let us take care of it for you!
