After posting the results of my digging on the Verari website and turning up the new management team at Verari (and taking them to task for not at least issuing a press release about what they are up to), we have some movement: that press release I was asking for.
What’s in it? Not much. The company has changed its name, slightly, from Verari Systems to Verari Technologies, and confirmation that Driggers led the investment group making the buy (information we had already shared)
With the purchase of substantially all of the assets, Mr. Driggers is re-starting the Verari engine this week. The new company, Verari Technologies, will focus on blade-based high-performance computing solutions, modular containerized data centers and blade-based storage development efforts. In addition, the Investment Group purchased all of Verari’s inventory, equipment and technologies and is offering immediate support to past Verari Systems’ customers.
“We have the opportunity to go back to our roots of being a consulting company that heavily partners to deliver custom solutions for our customers,” says David Driggers. “The ‘new Verari’ is going to build stronger partnerships with our customers while delivering the solutions they require. I’m a strong believer that companies are more successful when they listen and collaborate with their customers.”
According to other coverage, insideHPC isn’t the only news organization that Verari isn’t talking to yet. Its too bad they weren’t more proactive with their community outreach. Comments and links on Verari posts have trailed off to a mere trickle here at insideHPC as interest in the story wanes. We’ll have to see if there is anything left for our community to be interested in once the company is ready to talk about what it is doing.
