vCompute announced today it has successfully negotiated a new partnership with Quasar data center to provide cloud computing and high performance computing services. "This facility is a key component for cloud efforts and the additional complex computing services our clients require. The Quasar center will also allow vCompute to deploy a high security development lab for software companies that need to perform benchmarking and scalability testing," commented Edward Hawes, CEO of vCompute This facility is the third compute center vCompute has deployed in Houston and a fourth is planned for San Diego CA. to accommodate defense efforts.
The Quasar and vCompute partnership will concentrate on providing private cloud services and server farms to clients locally and abroad. "Our clients have requirements for increased compute capacity but do not want to expand their internal centers, or add more staff and infrastructure," continued Hawes...
vCompute continues to grow as demand for compute resources intensifies during the economic slowdown. When asked about the growth, Mr. Hawes stated, "vCompute's growth is a logical result of corporations tightening capital expenditures and relying more on outsourcing partners. The cycle of replenishing technology is never-ending. Medium and large businesses have realized that utilizing vCompute resources eliminates the need for constant upgrades to compute systems, staff and data center space. Due to the economies of scale vCompute provides these complex compute resources at a lower cost than corporations spend internally."
vCompute recently implemented GPU and Cloud technologies as well as completing an Infiniband upgrade across their entire spectrum of infrastructure. Industries that currently use vCompute include medical research firms, geophysical companies, government entities, chemical companies and earth sciences organizations. These industries have all expanded their requirements for compute power; hence vCompute's growth is expected to continue.
vCompute has been a leading global provider of on-demand high performance computing systems since 2003, and for security reasons is very private about its locations, clients and levels of infrastructure available. vCompute has been quietly growing for seven years and appears to be one of the longest running HPC providers yet. Clearly this company is one to watch, as they have weathered the economic slowdown very well and succeeded in establishing a solid footprint in the computing services industry.
