12/10/2002 - InfiniSwitch Corporation, the market leader in developing InfiniBand switching solutions designed for the data center, announced it has entered into a distribution partnership with SICORP, a leading reseller into the scientific and technical high-performance computing markets, expanding its North American distribution network. Earlier this week, InfiniSwitch announced it extended its presence internationally by signing distribution partnerships with Nissho Electronics in Japan and Andiamo, a Crucible Group Company, in Europe.
Under the terms of the agreement, SICORP will serve as a key reseller for InfiniSwitch, focusing on the high-performance computing (HPC) market. This expands InfiniSwitch’s coverage of this market based on earlier agreements with Abba Technologies. Expanding the coverage in this key market positions InfiniSwitch to capture market share with the HPC community, which has shown significant interest in InfiniBand.
SICORP focuses on emerging markets, which require advanced technologies like high-bandwidth and high capacity mass storage systems and high-performance computing. Since its inception, SICORP has integrated its technologies and solutions at universities, federal laboratories, military installations, private research institutes, broadcast and film studios.
“Our focus is to deliver the best technology, service and support possible,” said Sean Hetherington, Vice President of Marketing, SICORP. “We look forward to working with InfiniSwitch and delivering the highest quality InfiniBand switching and host channel adapter solutions to best meet our customers’ current and future needs.”
“SICORP has the proven expertise in understanding the needs of and reaching the markets which require high- performance and high-availability solutions,” said Don Zereski, CEO, InfiniSwitch Corporation. “As we begin to deliver products early next year, SICORP will enable us to rapidly expand our InfiniBand presence in the U.S.”
