Liberate the solutions to our world’s most important questions





Curing disease, predicting weather, operating our financial markets, finding oil and gas, exploring alternate energy solutions, designing new products, discovering new science, ensuring national security and dominance, and mining the ever-growing collection of data we produce across the globe every day….
These Hard Problems don’t need to be discovered; they just need to have their solutions liberated to run more efficiently in a better architecture.

The Data Vortex® switch enables commodity servers to provide superior performance  on the Hard Problems when compared with other big iron machines. The Hard Problems’ solutions do not perform well on systems optimized for LINPACK and are solved using algorithms that require powerful processors as well as high-bandwidth, low-latency, congestion-free networks. The Data Vortex network excels at very large problems with massive data movement between processors. Current research being run on Data Vortex systems exemplifies a level of success on real-world applications.

Hard Problems arise across the scientific spectrum including:

  • Energy
  • Geophysics
  • Big Data
  • Bioinformatics
  • Astronomy
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Physics, chemistry and biology
  • Weather and climate simulations
  • Computer aided design
  • Large data management and manipulation
  • Intelligence and National Security
  • Molecular Simulation
