The cluster is running great. We were able to complete some production runs and a set of CFD runs that previously took 6.5 days was completed in 14 hours. Thank you for all of your hard work!
We purchased Cowboy from Advanced Clustering in 2012 and it has been an invaluable resource to the HPC community at Oklahoma State. The engineers and techs at ACT work with us to continuously improve this, most recently with the addition of their job submission software, eQUEUE. We have been thoroughly pleased with how products and service from Advanced Clustering just work.
When I first started looking at how to configure Cowboy to provide the optimum HPC resource for our campus, the engineers at Advanced Clustering took the time to go through the various processor and storage technologies to see which ones offered us the best price/performance. We have been thoroughly pleased with ACT’s products and service.
I've recommended ACT systems and tech support to a number of colleagues and have received nothing but thank-you's after purchase.
ACT is essentially unique in that they are very knowledgeable and "hands-on" with respect to their products and service...they truly enjoy rolling up their sleeves and solving technical problems!
