Linspire HPC

Linspire HPC is a 64 bit Linux based OS, that is designed and implemented for HPC or High Performance Computing. It has all the applications and capabilities of a UNIX style system with the support and viability of Linux.

Desktops and Servers.

With this system you can host the entire line of legacy applications that may still be in use in your environment as well as facilities for deploying web apps. Linspire HPC is certified in many states to run government intranet and web based applications. Built into Linspire HPC is what we call the UNIX subsystems which allows you to take your current UNIX applications and run many* of these applications unmodified on Linspire HPC. We also combine an application environment that will allow you to bring web apps to your platform whether hosting these applications, consuming these applications or both.

 Linspire HPC can also be used as a desktop system for your productivity workers, researchers, code developers and multimedia creators. Linspire HPC is shipped either pre-installed on our systems for maximum performance and compatibility or users can purchase Linspire HPC for hardware that they wish to re-purpose.

*Applications that are targeted to inter-operate specifically on hardware requires a recompile of the source code. Applications that require Java, QT or the x86/x64 platform require little to no changes.


 Support Subscription - For an annual fee the support subscription provides you with 12 months of phone and e-mail support from PC/OpenSystems LLC. It also provides you with onsite service and support as well as auditing, training and a complete overview of your IT infrastructure.
