Scali develops software technology that make cluster solutions the preferred choice for companies that want more performance than their money can buy from traditional High Performance Computing vendors. Through portability and flexibility Scali's software products can support a large number of different customer needs through the use of standard PC technology paired with modern standardized interconnect technology. Equally important has been the focus on a strategy for developing software modules that easily follows the innovations in processor, I/O and operating systems made by the dominant technology providers like Intel, Sun, AMD and the Open Source community (Linux). This has been achieved by using modern software techniques, building the software on application level programs, daemons, libraries, scripts and device drivers with well defined interfaces and avoiding modification of OS kernels.
