"Linux NetworX, a provider of powerful and easy-to-manage cluster supercomputing solutions, announced today plans to expand its Professional Services Group to help lower the barriers to adopting Linux-based cluster systems. Existing services include on-site cluster integration and 7 x 24 support, while expanded services will include application porting and optimization, and cluster training/certification.

"The Linux NetworX Professional Services Group will help make cluster computing more widely available to those organizations with limited technical resources, while allowing all of our customers to get the most out of their clustering investment," said Clark Roundy, vice president marketing and professional services for Linux NetworX. "The benefits of the expanded services include easier-to-manage and more efficient systems that further reduce the total cost-of-ownership for our customers."

The application porting service to be offered by Linux NetworX is vital in helping organizations change from traditional supercomputer or UNIX-based system, to using a Linux cluster supercomputer. For most organizations the return-on-investment for porting the application is realized well within the first year because of the enormous price-to-performance advantage Linux clusters deliver."
