QCT has a long history of open-source community contributions and collaboration. The company actively participates with several open-source organizations including the Open Compute Project (OCP), OpenStack Foundation, Open Networking Foundation (ONF), Open Networking Lab (ON.Lab), and recently OpenHPC to name a few. By leveraging open community standards, QCT can minimize duplicating vendor efforts, and focus the majority of R&D investments on the development of innovative product technologies that lead data center transformation with its partners.

"The open-source community continues to play an important role for QCT’s synergistic path, and as part of this effort we plan to innovative with industry-leading partners,” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. "We believe with open standards we will deliver benefits to the HPC ecosystem, including researchers and scientists that use our systems every day. QCT will seek to enable OpenHPC solutions based on QCT’s proven servers and its associated storage, network, and rack solutions. Having all the gear built under-one-roof we plan to enable long term compatibility, stability and usability of solutions developed by our extended ecosystem with our associates.”

"Joining as a Silver Member, QCT’s participation is an important addition to the OpenHPC project. The alignment that open-source HPC software components and best practices can accelerate HPC transformation will greatly benefit the entire HPC community," said Alan Clark,Chair of the OpenHPC Business Governing Board. "Like in many industries, a cloud-based implementation is an important trend for the next generation and we’re excited to gain from QCT's years of experience in the cloud server space."

Commitment to Open Initiatives: Expanding QCT Synergy to the HPC Ecosystem


Access to the industry’s leading tools is key to successful implementation of HPC, especially with the exponential growth of data in today’s transforming world.  In support of this need and for open environment HPC developers, QCT has joined forces with Altair and ThinkParQ.  Leveraging such open-source technology, and also their commercial support features, QxSmart can fulfill diverse HPC user requirements whether it is the need for a preferred workload manager or a scalable storage file system.

QCT’s lead to push many innovative initiatives, from server, storage, network, rack, to cloud HPC deployments allows them to provide optimized hardware with the latest technologies to the supercomputing community. When it comes down to the core of any system, it’s the underlying hardware and standardized industry application stacks that serves as a foundation for computing, and QCT has its roots in the creation of such solutions.
