Tech Data Exclusive Distributor For Clustercorp
Posted by Jarred LeFebvre, Monday September 24 2007 @ 08:12AM EDT

Tech Data U.S. Exclusive Distributor of Cluster Computing Solutions from Clustercorp

High-performance computing solutions now available to VARs through Tech Data’s Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Division

CLEARWATER, Fla. (Sept. 24, 2007) – The Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Division (AIS) of Tech Data Corporation today announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Clustercorp, a leading provider of software, services and support for high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. Clustercorp software enables users to tie together server hardware to create more robust computing systems capable of processing intensive data calculations such as long-term financial projections and engineering design.

“With Clustercorp, VARs can network multiple industry-standard servers to deploy HPC clusters that provide end users with enhanced processing power at a fraction of the cost of traditional high-end computing solutions,” said Tech Data Director, Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure Solutions, Amy Belcher. “That’s an extremely compelling solution ideal for VARs supporting organizations with extensive data computation requirements in both the public and private sectors.”

Clustercorp’s commercial solutions are built upon Rocks™, the leading open-source cluster computing platform. Through AIS, Tech Data will distribute the entire line of Clustercorp solutions and services, including Rocks+Support, Rocks+MOAB and Rocks+Rolls. In addition to the successful Rocks platform, VARs can leverage Clustercorp solutions to deliver an array of value-added HPC support, management tools and specialized applications. Rocks+Support, sold as an annual subscription, enables VARs to deploy Clustercorp solutions and also offer users comprehensive professional support services. Rocks+Rolls streamlines software deployment and configuration by automatically installing drivers and applications across all servers in a cluster. Rocks+MOAB is a management tool to schedule and monitor HPC cluster workloads.

“As HPC continues its rapid growth out of the lab and into commercial environments, the high-performance computing market offers VARs exciting new opportunities too big to overlook,” said Tim McIntire, CEO, Clustercorp. “Our partnership with Tech Data’s AIS Division will enable us to engage channel partners delivering these solutions, representing an exciting new growth opportunity for Clustercorp.”

An HPC cluster leveraging Clustercorp solutions can be built with as few as four industry-standard servers but is scalable to thousands of systems. Industries utilizing these solutions include aerospace and auto design for wind tunnel simulations; oil and gas for energy exploration modeling; and bio technology and finance for extensive data extrapolation and projections. Clustercorp services not only provide access to the technical resources necessary to support these solutions, but the company also maintains a network of highly skilled Ph.D. consultants to assist engineers with specific scientific applications.

Tech Data will provide Clustercorp resellers with sales and technical resources to assist in solutions development and software licensing. The distributor also will work closely with Clustercorp to develop targeted channel programs to recruit VARs nationwide. To learn more, call (800) 237-8931, ext. 77121, or visit www.techdata.com.

AIS combines a high-touch, consultative sales approach with the distributor's extensive technical expertise and broad product knowledge to help resellers capitalize on the demand for mid-market and enterprise-level server, storage and software solutions. Through partner enablement initiatives and dedicated, expert resources, the division helps VARs develop a profitable, strategic approach to selling high-end data centers utilizing industry-standard solutions.
