Build a High-Performance Computing Infrastructure – and Get It Right from the Start

Julie Fagan

build-hpc-infrastructure-dimensionsHigh-performance computing (HPC) infrastructures are complex by nature. With hundreds or even thousands of nodes running in parallel, architectural and management complexities abound. As technologies such as artificial intelligence and Internet of Things become the norm, organizations across all industries are turning to HPC solutions to gain or maintain their competitive advantage.

When building an HPC infrastructure, there are nearly endless options for the required compute, networking, and storage components. The challenges that many organizations struggle with are threefold:

  • How do you choose the components that best meet your business and budget requirements?
  • How do you integrate the components into a solution that works seamlessly?
  • How do you make sure that your solution will be able to accommodate changes in workloads and storage requirements over time?

The Secret to Getting It Right

Creating an integrated HPC infrastructure requires skills and experience that most organizations don’t  have in house. One of the best ways to address that gap is to engage the help of a systems integrator to design, build, and deploy a customized solution that meets your exact needs. But how do you choose a systems integrator?

At NetApp, we choose the best of the best to partner with and deliver best-in-class solutions. One of those partners is Applied Data Systems (ADS). ADS has years of experience helping customers to acquire and integrate the IT solutions they need to enable their business success. 

Stand Out from the Competition

In the field of systems integrators, ADS is a leader. They work with you and your team to make sure that you have an HPC solution that enables your business to stand out from the pack. The experts at ADS are passionate about making sure that you have the right solution. They take the time to listen, analyze, and understand your current and future needs so that they can design a solution that’s just right for you. 

ADS’ strong relationships with vendors like IBM and NetApp enable them to negotiate and obtain the best value for you. Their deep knowledge of Lustre, IBM Spectrum Scale, and NetApp® E-Series storage enables them to realize the full value that a cutting-edge HPC solution can bring to your business, including how to apply all the new features and functionality of the hardware and software components to your specific environment. Their ability to design solutions that grow incrementally to accommodate both budget and capacity requirements offers more flexibility than most vendors or DIY projects can provide.
