Having helped build a few power walls at various events myself, I can tell you that it takes a lot of work, patience, and expertise. That sounds like a business opportunity. Enter X-ISS with their newly announced VizHPC service.
In a turnkey solution, VizHPC combines reference configuration clusters with all the software, testing, and installation services needed to deploy power walls at customer facilities in a fast and efficient manner.
Our new Dell visualization cluster is proving extremely valuable not only to our research efforts, but we also plan to have our impressive viz-wall serve as a way to showcase the capabilities of Louisiana Tech University to alumni and donors, students and prospective students, said Dr. Jean Gourd, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Computer Science. “In working with X-ISS on our visualization wall installation and knowledge-transfer, I was excited to see the project transform from boxes of equipment one day, to a completely integrated system, including hardware, middleware and applications, the next. It provided peace-of-mind knowing the details of installing a complex system like this were being taken care of, allowing us to focus on working with researchers on their specific needs.”
