Flux7 Named to CRN Next-Gen 250 List for Third Year Running

We are honored to share that Flux7 has been once again named to the CRN Magazine 2019 Next-Gen 250 list — for the third consecutive year. In case you are unfamiliar, this annual list recognizes standout IT solution providers that embrace emerging technologies to adapt to an evolving marketplace. Those on the list (you can find the complete list at www.crn.com/nextgen250) have been identified by experts at The Channel Company as meeting their customers’ technology needs in areas such as business analytics, cloud computing, mobility, unified communications, virtualization, or other leading-edge technologies before they became mainstream.

Flux7 was recognized specifically for its ability to implement cutting-edge solutions for large enterprises  and consistently meet customers’ ever-changing IT needs to drive technology transformation. As an example of market-driven expansion, Flux7 recently announced a new HPC Cloud Consulting Practice dedicated to helping organizations take advantage of cloud-based high performance computing to accelerate innovation.


In fact, CRN also recently featured news about Flux7’s new HPC consulting practice. In an article, AWS Standout Flux7 Goes Back To Founder’s Roots With New High-Performance Computing Practice author Joseph Tsidulko notes that, “The cutting-edge cloud solutions implementer pulled back from high-performance computing years ago, sensing the market wasn’t ready. A lot has changed since.”


To see how much, check out our recent HPC case studies:


  • Personal Peptides sequences, analyzes and compares DNA against large data sets, requiring massive amounts of computing resources in order to return information within a reasonable timeframe. To help Personal Peptides maintain competitive advantage through efficient use of computing resources, Flux7 helped the firm blueprint a cloud-based HPC solution that allowed the company to remain agile, with a highly secure infrastructure that provides an additional level of data protection along the document chain.
  • Flux7 used the Flux7 Enterprise DevOps Framework as a foundation to create a high performance computing environment for this clinical research firm who explores genomic data from real studies. Flux7 created a single Galaxy cluster for the company, using SLURM for scheduling as it has the ability to distribute workloads and collect results. The cluster allows all the firm’s scientists to use the same cluster that auto scales for jobs, rather than CPU usage or other compute metrics, ensuring scalability that directly addresses their research needs.
  • A leader in autonomous tractor innovation, the world’s largest manufacturer of agricultural equipment needed to perform HPC calculations related to fluid dynamics and element analysis during the equipment design process. Parallel compute needed to spread over hundreds-thousands of cores to support traditional scientific computing workloads. HPC jobs are sent to a number of AWS regions, and bursting is performed to meet dynamic demand.


Last, we are happy to share that Flux7 was highlighted by 451 Research; in a recent report they note that, “For incumbent enterprises, innovation is now often about application refactoring, and many are looking for partners with proven methodologies of how to put apps in the cloud. Flux7, a DevOps-based IT consultancy, is expanding its expertise to address platforms beyond AWS, and has developed new partnerships with companies such as TerraForm and Kubernetes.” 451 subscribers can access the full report online.
