At last month’s International Supercomputing Conference, Lenovo revealed its plans for expansion with the HPC (high-performance computing) sector with a host of new partnerships and initiatives. These plans, the company states, are part of a plan to position itself on the world stage of HPC.
The company has, according to a press release:
- Adopted Intel’s HPC scalable system framework and joined the code modernization enablement program.
- Formed a partnership with Mellanox to accelerate the adoption of new server technology. This includes the NeXtScale System and Mellanox’ EDR 100Gb/s InifiniBand solution.
- Launched Phase 2 of SuperMUC at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center
“HPC continues to be at an exciting time for our industry but in particular an exciting time for Lenovo. We see great opportunities for worldwide growth in the mainstream commercial HPC market and our global footprint, deep knowledge of the China market and heritage in the commercial sector makes us a natural fit for customers wanting to work with a true global player — whether it be for analytics; big data analysis or commercial systems for industries such as manufacturing, financial services, medical and energy. We are continuing to accelerate both our business and our ambitions by investing in innovations, R&D, services and partnerships to ensure our clients can be at the forefront of HPC both today and in the future,” says Brian Connors, vice president of Strategic Alliances and general manager of HPC Worldwide, Lenovo.
