Comprehensive Managed Services
System administration can be challenging and that’s where partnering with us can help. We offer a full suite of managed services to match the needs of your administration workloads.
Advanced HPC Training
When it comes to HPC computing, there’s always something to be learned. We’re part of the fabric of knowledge in HPC and constantly share and refine learnings and best practices with our clients. We offer training in a formal class room setting, individual mentoring or provide a complete system review, the choice is yours.
Professional On-Site Service
When you need an engineer on-site to install and configure your HPC cluster or systems our engineering team is here for you. We’ve been to hundreds of data centers and know the challenges and what it takes to have a successful and complete onsite. On schedule, on budget with perfect execution.
1. Facility & Environmental
Your new HPC cluster or server needs to live somewhere. Many vendors choose not to discuss the housing and location of your system before processing your order. That’s because they assume this responsibility is solely yours. We think otherwise. In the first part of our design process we help you plan your system starting from the beginning. Your system has unique needs that need to be met. Understanding the housing facility’s mechanical, electrical and methodology of cooling, will ensure the seamless integration of your system.
2. Evaluating The
In the next stage of the process we help you build the components of your system for maximizing the performance based on your allocated budget. Here we’re faced with hundreds of potential hardware components (and just as many software choices) and each component has its own cost and performance specs. The complex jigsaw of interlocking each piece, with the end goal of unlocking the absolute optimum performance/value architecture, is the greatest challenge of the entire design process.
3. Future Integration & Expansion Plans
We help you design a system for the future. In this step of the design process our team will help you strategize and pre-plan your system’s expansion, so when your operation grows your system can scale with you. Exploring and discussing your future plans early on gives us many options for allocating and investing your system growth resources correctly in the beginning. So when the time is right, the process of upgrading and expanding becomes a seamless one.
4. Lifecycle Management &
We help you manage your system for the long-term. Your system will grow in time. During this period you will be faced with maintenance and management challenges, patches, updates and upgrades. We partner closely with our clients to understand their unique system challenges. In this part of our process we combine this valuable intelligence with our historical data and experiences, then integrate this into your system design process strategy.
5. Building the
Software & Your Applications
At the heart of your system you will find the software stack. Aspen allows you to define the software stack using our online Statement of Work (SOW) form to better understand your requirements. This online form covers everything from operating systems to applications to compilers and more. Once this is complete, an engineer will review to ensure compatibility. This process helps to ensure quick delivery of a system that is configured to fully meet your specific needs.
6. Final System
Delivery & Installation
The final stage of our design process is the actual delivery of your system. At this point of the process no obstacles should stand in our way. This is why we strive to cover every single detail, from the kind of receiving facility, door heights, flooring type, height of elevators, door widths, exit signs and any single small or big thing that can potentially become a hurdle for final completion. It doesn’t matter if we’re coming on site for a full installation or were here to move a single server through the front door; we never stop asking: what else could happen?
