High End Compute
High End Compute is a UK based SME (Small & Medium Enterprise) consultancy that aims to empower more academics, researchers and SMEs access and use "high end compute" to accelerate their work. High End Compute has a USP (Unique Selling Point) of promoting awareness of the environmental impact of computing by illustrating how to measure and minimise the energy-to-solution without adversely affecting time-to-solution and keeping within any required power cap.
Rather than solely provide optimised code, High End Compute has an addition USP of aiming to help clients longer term by explaining the steps to the provided solution: by provision of the optimised code and the skills in how to accelerate other codes.
