Adaptive Computing CEO, Rob Clyde, celebrated the triumphs of supercomputing and the work of Adaptive Computing customers on Bloomberg TV. The segment, “Why is Stephen Hawking using Adaptive Computing software?” allowed us to highlight how our customers (scientists, researchers, and business professionals) are changing the world.

To further recognize organizations and individuals that continually push the technological envelope, we launched the First Annual Adaptie Awards at MoabCon 2013. Those awarded are making cutting-edge achievements in the HPC and cloud communities.

Besides recognizing our customers, Adaptive Computing announced key partnerships and software updates in 2013. Take a look at our quick recap:

  • Moab Task Manager increases efficiency of short computing jobs and is capable of running in Moab and TORQUE environments.
  • We’re working alongside Atipa Technologies to manage computing workloads at Department of Energy’s EMSL.
  • Adaptive Computing joined the OpenStack Foundation to bring our experience in policy-based optimization to the OpenStack community.
  • Moab Cloud Optimizer integration for HP Cloud Service Automation 3.2 brings our out-of-the-box policies to help IT organizations drive higher ROI from HP CSA private cloud environments.

Other organizations are taking notice of our hard work in policy-based optimization for private cloud and HPC environments. Take a look at the awards and industry recognitions Adaptive Computing received in 2013:

  • Gartner named Adaptive Computing a “Cool Vendor” in cloud management. The annual report included five emerging vendors providing cloud management platform and/or cloud migration capabilities.
  • Adaptive Computing was awarded five green cloud computing patents bringing our total number of patents to 31 and bolstering our private cloud portfolio.
  • We were named a Red Herring Top 100 Company in North America for 2013. This prestigious award recognizes the most promising private ventures from around the world.
  • Adaptive Computing received the Utah Genius Award, which recognizes Utah’s top 20 companies by number of patents issues.

In 2014, we’re looking to the future of computing in a big data environment. At Supercomputing we discussed creating a better infrastructure to manage big data and continuing into the New Year, we will touch on this important topic even more.
