A Linux-based, parallel computing cluster configured for optimum execution of GASP.
What's the Problem?
Complex scientific problems require high performance computational systems to run computer-generated models and simulations. Traditional high-performance computer systems that include proprietary components that make them expensive to purchase and maintain are used to solve complex, multi-variable problems. Many Organizations are forced to reserve time on large supercomputer systems or to purchase expensive multi-processor workstations in order to meet their engineering design requirements. Scheduling time on supercomputer systems is inconvenient and in many cases requires rescheduling because of modeling conflicts and inadequate software model fidelity. Bottom line is that traditional high performance computing approaches result in lost analysis time, which translates into a negative impact on design. Lost time or low quality hits the bottom line in unacceptable ways. Those days are coming to an end. Read Aberdeen Group Study to find out more.
What can I do?
If you are experiencing the problems described above you should consider purchasing a certified, scalable Linux clustering solution tailored to optimize the performance of your software. Your primary consideration when purchasing a high performance computing solution should be lowest price/performance, (PTP) ratio. What is often misrepresented, however, is the determination of the "performance" portion of the factor. Incorrectly configured scalable clustering solutions will result in low performance at a low price. Low performance at any price is unacceptable and a waste of money.
Without a clear understanding of the associated technologies and implementation approaches of the actual software application, the resulting hardware configuration can have a high cost and poor performance….don't make this costly mistake. Our Linux cluster, QRenegade, is specifically tailored to maximize the performance of your software.
QRenegade is a scalable hardware platform that combines standard personal computer hardware with familiar network and operating system software (Microsoft NT and Linux) to radically increase the performance and reliability of mission critical business and scientific software applications. QRenegade uses clustering technologies to link multiple off-the-shelf computers to create a virtual super computer. The scalability of QRenegade allows our customers to add additional horsepower to their applications by adding more personal computers to their QRenegade cluster to increase processing power and speed. In addition, server redundancy provides automatic rollover in the unlikely event that a server crash occurs.
How can you get QRenegade?
Our deployment and support methodology is simple, thorough and rapid. We ask you a few questions to help refine your requirements. We then document the required configuration and build out your system to specification. We thoroughly test your QRenegade cluster to validate throughput against our benchmarks to ensure all systems are finely tuned. Once validated, we dismantle and ship the equipment to your location, rebuild to exact specification and revalidate. We also provide training and consulting services if requested to help you architect your software to maximize performance. Finally, we include in every QRenegade deployment an annual maintenance and support agreement that ensures maximum uptime. We also include a biannual checkup to ensure all components are functional and finely tuned to maximize performance.
What about the competition?
Two primary reasons favor QRenegade. First our Linux cluster provides a price/performance ratio that is at least 25x above the competing proprietary UNIX and supercomputer alternatives. You get equal processing power, stability and reliable performance for less than half the price. Second and most importantly, we optimize QRenegade for maximum performance with your software applications. For example, is configured and certified to maximize the performance of Aerosoft's CFD software products for the Aerospace industry. Your software will run faster on QRenegade.

We can help.
Maximum performance on any clustered hardware architecture requires that software be architected in a way that leverages the performance gains from parallel computing. We have already configured QRenegade to maximize the performance of your software, as it exists today. We have professional consulting services available to help you architect your software to more fully leverage QRenegade so that your software always performs at its maximum potential
