Q-Leap - The company behind Qlustar

Qlustar Partner Program launched

Q-Leap Networks announces the launch of the global Qlustar partner program and encourages applications by companies, universities or non-profit organizations that are active in the HPC or related fields. In the following we will answer the most relevant questions about the program.

What is the purpose of the program?

The goal of the partner program is to establish a Qlustar eco-system that will have benefits for all participants. By addressing most aspects and phases in the life-cycle of a cluster system (implementation, testing, application tuning, maintenance), we aim to make Qlustar clusters a standardized solution and seamless experience for both administrators and users of a Qlustar system as well as companies providing components based on or for Qlustar. Furthermore we expect the program to enhance discussion between the partners on general HPC topics with the result of bringing up ideas for mostly required new features and leading to the improvement of Qlustar as a whole.

Who can join?

The program is designed for organizations/companies that are engaged in the Linux HPC, Cloud, Storage cluster segment. Companies offering ready-to-run clusters (so-called integrators), independent software vendors providing applications for HPC clusters and the HPC department within IT centers of larger universities or research institutions are particularly suitable for the program. Initially, the number of Academic/non-profit partners is limited to 5. They should have significant prior experience in the operation of HPC or storage clusters. Since we appreciate cultural/geographical diversity, we prefer that these 5 partners represent different countries/continents.
