Nor-Tech Named Top HPC Cluster Computer Builder by CRN

Nor-Tech_logoMINNEAPOLIS, MN, Mar 27, 2017 – Nor-Tech, one of the world’s leading custom HPC cluster computer builders, was just named to CRN’s list of the top 40 Data Center Infrastructure Providers—joining ranks with IBM, Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Lenovo.

Nor-Tech president and CEO David Bollig said, “This was quite an honor from a publication that we consider to be an important resource for us and our partners. We were also pleased to be included among the legends of the technology industry.”

CRN’s Joseph F. Kovar said, “The cloud, all-flash storage and software-defined everything, as well as the pressure on businesses to turn capital expenses into operating expenses, means data center costs are a key part of any equation. For solution providers, finding the right experts in their quest to help customers build and operate their data centers is crucial.”

For over 30 years, CRN’s editorial coverage has helped technology solution providers make successful decisions and avoid costly pitfalls. CRN editorial is a leading source for breaking news, cutting-edge opinion from channel leaders and technical analysis. The publication is a property of The Channel Company; the list is featured in the February 2017 issue and online.

Nor-Tech was previously honored with Microsoft’s Most Valuable System Builder Partner Award, which is given to only one organization each year. The award honors the OEM system builder that delivers superior customer value as well as key support services. Nor-Tech was also an HPCwire award finalist in 2015 and 2016.

“These awards are an important touchstone for us, another confirmation of the value we bring to the market,” Bollig said. “Of course the most important indicator is our expanding portfolio of clients that trust us over and over for leading-edge technology backed by outstanding service.”
