  • 1. INTEGRITY ManagedHPCRESPONSIVENESSEXPERTISEPROFESSIONALISM - Outsourced System Management for HPC Cluster Systems Solutions to Manage Systems that are Solving the World’s Big Data Problems CONFIDENTIAL
  • 2. Sound familiar? “Major architectural trends in HPC have combined to make effective system administration a much more complicated challenge than it used to be. This has led to a shortage of qualified system administration talent for HPC markets.” - Addison Snell, InterSect360 ResearchCONFIDENTIAL © 2013 X-ISS Solutions to Manage Systems that are Solving the World’s Big Data Problems

  • 9. Industry Support “After an extensive search for [a cluster administrator], we only received a small handful of candidates, of which only a few were qualified. We didnt have the timeframe to hire and train the right person for the job, which is where X-ISS and its ManagedHPC program came into play. X-ISS has been able to handle getting the system up and running, software installations, and proactively handle technical issues so we could focus on working with the Engineering staff …. It has allowed us to focus our attention where it was most needed.” - David Crass, University of Wisconsin Director of Research ComputingCONFIDENTIAL © 2013 X-ISS Solutions to Manage Systems that are Solving the World’s Big Data Problems
