For Immediate Release
Fortuitous Technologies has recently announced the addition of strategic performance engineering services including performance planning, capacity planning, reliability and feasibility studies. The main focus on these services is the cluster, grid, and super computing markets.
Fortuitous Technologies was recently joined by Dr. Dominique Heger, who brings a vast set of talents in performance engineering, modeling, capacity planning and cluster computing to the company. Dr. Heger was a core performance engineer in many large cluster and SMP projects for IBM, including ASCI Purple and ASCI White.
According to Dr. Heger, “An emerging consensus in the performance community is that the unilateral peak performance-centric focus has become misdirected, and that issues such as reliability, availability, maintainability, security, and scalability have emerged as being more important. Applying Performance Engineering techniques early on in a projects allows to design reasonable performance targets into a solution.”
With its new performance engineering emphasis, Fortuitous enhances its position in the performance optimization, capacity planning, reliability, and high-availability markets. These services are widely recognized as critical ingredients to the financial, oil, scientific, and biotechnology computing markets.
Fortuitous provides performance engineering, training, and support services for the Linux, Unix, and high-performance computing world. For further information and enquiries, please contact:
