Columbia, Md. (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Padova Technologies, a leading manufacturer of specialized servers, storage solutions and custom systems, announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with global supercomputer leader, Cray Inc., to offer the Cray CX1™ supercomputer. Padova joins Cray's exclusive group of technology resellers nationwide.
"We are thrilled to be working with the worldwide leader in high performance computing (HPC)," said Keith Fischbach, president of Padova Technologies. "Through this alliance with Cray, we can now offer new cutting edge choices in simple, affordable HPC clusters. Padova is working to transform the way our customers think of advanced supercomputing products - hoping to proliferate the Cray CX1 system among individuals and workgroups that required a supercomputer, but never thought it was economically possible."
Designed to meet the computational challenges of scientists and engineers, the Cray CX1 deskside supercomputer is the world's first system to combine advanced computing capabilities and storage in a single, integrated desktop chassis. Equipped with up to 16 Intel® Xeon® processors and compatible with Windows HPC Server 2008 or Linux-based Rocks+, the Cray CX1 system is priced from $25,000 and is purpose-built for offices, laboratories and university departments.
"For organizations wanting to harness HPC without the complexity and cost of traditional clusters, the Cray CX1 product is the perfect solution," said Ian Miller, senior vice president of the productivity solutions group and marketing at Cray. "A principal goal for the Cray CX1 system was to bring HPC to a wide range of new users by breaking new ground in affordability and adaptability. Selecting Padova Technologies as a reseller positions Cray to achieve this goal."
