Parabon Computation, a veteran provider of extreme-scale software and services, today announced significant reseller wins by signing up with four Value Added Resellers (VARs): CenTauri Solutions, Human Touch, Jackpine Technologies, and Three Wire Systems. These VARs will promote, sell and support Parabon's flagship Frontier® Grid Platform software and existing Frontier-enabled applications. In addition, they will develop custom grid software, adapt legacy applications to run on Frontier, and make Parabon's products more widely available via agency-specific contract vehicles.
Parabon's Frontier Grid Platform allows resellers to offer their customers a mature, secure and cost-effective software solution that dramatically increases the ROI of existing enterprise or cloud infrastructures. Frontier uses existing resources more efficiently by securely and unobtrusively harnessing the idle, otherwise wasted capacity of an organization's IT assets — on average 90% — to deliver high-performance computation as a service. Frontier's scalability and price-performance advantages over dedicated hardware solutions enable its users to significantly reduce the time and cost required to complete a wide variety of data-heavy, compute-intensive and distributed command and control operations. The Frontier Grid Platform has been available for almost a decade and is currently managing some of the largest computational grids in the federal government.
Parabon's new VARs cross a wide variety of market sectors that reflect the broad applicability of Frontier. CenTauri Solutions, which supports the Intelligence community, "anticipates that its partnership with Parabon will provide a unique offering which blends their software development expertise -- particularly in modeling and simulation -- with the computing power of Frontier." Human Touch, a Small Business Administration (SBA)-certified Section 8(a) small and disadvantaged business, is developing a scientific computing solution stack on the Frontier platform to support the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), specifically with the analysis of drug interactions. Jackpine Technologies, a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO) Small Business that supports the United States Air Force (USAF) and Department of Defense (DoD), believes that "the Frontier Cybersecurity Suite can augment current DoD network vulnerability analysis techniques, and that Parabon Blitz provides a valuable tool for distributed system testing and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack simulations." Three Wire Systems, an award-winning SDVO, has partnered with Parabon to harness the power provided by "the Frontier Grid Platform to solve the most challenging computational problems at both DoD and civilian agencies."
"Our new partners are trusted advisors to a diverse set of government customers," said Dr. Steven Armentrout, Parabon's founder and chief executive officer. "Working with them will greatly expand our ability to deliver best-in-class grid and cloud computing solutions to the Federal market."
