Grid Dynamics announced a partnership with Microsoft today that marks the group as an HPC consultant and gives them strategic access to further develop their Windows HPC Server practice. While working toward this relationship, Grid Dynamics became a certified Microsoft consultant and is already delivering innovative, end-to-end solutions on the Windows HPC Server platform. This includes the HPC Excel Acceleration Tool Kit (HEAT), which is a set of simple interfaces that Grid Dynamics developed. HEAT allows customers to run complex Excel spreadsheets in distributed parallel execution environments on the Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 beta.
As one of the world’s leading consultancies focused on application scalability and HPC, we have developed practices areas and expertise around a number of HPC technologies and products,” said Victoria Livschitz, founder of Grid Dynamics. “Microsoft’s technology stack has long been a strategic area of emphasis for us. We are participating in the technology adoption program for the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 beta. Through this program we have gained unique insights and expertise. Today’s announcement will help us deliver even more robust and scalable solutions for our customers.”
