The awards received are for the ‘Best HPC Cluster Solution or Technology’ and the ‘Best HPC Storage Product or Technology’, the latter a collaborative project with the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego for its Data Oasis Storage System running on the ‘Gordon’ supercomputer.

The awards were announced during the opening reception for the 2012 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC12) taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah. The selection marks the third time that an Appro product has been honored with the HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards in the past five years.

“We are very pleased that the Appro Xtreme-X™ Supercomputer has been recognized for the HPCwire Editor’s Choice Awards as the ‘Best HPC Cluster Solution’ and ‘Best HPC Storage product’, said Daniel Kim, CEO of Appro. “We are very proud to highlight that the SDSC and the world’s top three national laboratories supercomputing sites are taking advantage of the performance and productivity gains of Appro’s Xtreme-X™ Supercomputer solutions, offering high performance, flexibility, reliability and investment protection that can scale.”

"It’s an honor to be able to acknowledge organizations like Appro and the individuals behind them who exemplify the hard work and dedication required in developing new technologies that ultimately benefit mankind”, said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications Inc., publisher of HPCwire. "The awards represent the highest level of recognition by the HPCwire editorial staff and the leaders and luminaries in the high performance computing industry. Our warmest congratulations go out to Appro and to all the recipients of this year’s awards.”
