The BeeGFS Rising Bee Award, given to Advanced Clustering Technologies in recognition of our being the fastest growing partner of the year

Advanced Clustering Technologies today received the BeeGFS Rising Bee Award as fastest growing partner for 2018 during a ceremony at the BeeGFS booth at Supercomputing 2018 in Dallas.

BeeGFS (formerly FhGFS) is the leading high-performance parallel cluster file system, delivered by ThinkParQ and developed in cooperation with Fraunhofer HPC.

Advanced Clustering partnered with ThinkParQ in May to integrate the BeeGFS parallel file system into the turn-key HPC solutions being built by the Kansas City-based company, which has been building HPC systems since its founding in 2001.

BeeGFS is available open source and powers the storage of hundreds of scientific and industry customer-sites worldwide. It is ideal for demanding, high-performance, high-throughput workloads for modeling and simulation, product engineering, life sciences, deep learning, predictive analytics, media and financial services.

“With the integration of BeeGFS, we are essentially offering our customers a solution that is 100% scalable and redundant,” said Advanced Clustering President Kyle Sheumaker. “If you need increased capacity, simply add more servers. If a crash occurs, the redundancies kick in, and there’s no downtime.”

BeeGFS won recognition of its own during the SC18 event when it was presented with an HPCwire 2018 Editors’ Choice Award for Best HPC Storage Product or Technology.
