Traditional HPC

100% Open Source Turnkey Traditional HPC

Open Source

Open Source software is not a company asset or marketing switch, rather it is a community first development and collaboration model. 

We believe that open source projects should never be controlled by a corporate entity, agenda, or held hostage to a business model. So when we decide to open source or contribute to a project, we believe in it with all of our heart, and put it outside the control of our corporate umbrella.

Our business model is simple, it is up to us to prove that we can help you and your organization through personal and meaningful support and services.

The Building Blocks of Traditional HPC, CIQ creates and maintains the base stack used pervasively throughout HPC.


Needs to do its job and stay out of the way. There should be no underlying system dependencies, changes or “stack” for the controller or worker nodes.


Used by hobbyists, researchers, scientists, engineers and systems administrators. This means that the CIQ Solutions must be simple to use and understand.


Highly flexible and can address the needs of any environment from a computer lab with graphical workstations, to under-the-desk clusters, to massive supercomputing centers providing traditional HPC capabilities to thousands of users.

Why? Because we believe in empowering people to do amazing things. When people succeed, teams succeed, when teams succeed, organizations succeed. We start where it matters most: with the people.

With this model, we don’t count systems, entitlements, cloud instances, virtual machines, or containers because they don’t count. It’s the people who count.
