With decades of experience in all phases of HPC, Microway’s production and integration teams ensure your workstations, clusters and storage servers arrive fully-tested and ready-to-run. All systems are thoroughly tested at our factory before shipment to your site.
Our testing process considers each component in the system to verify operation and reliability. Primary areas of focus include the processors (CPUs), memory, storage and network fabric. Our test suite includes applications that have been shown to cause faults in the field, as well as detect infant mortality.
We look at much more than a simple on/off test. The operating system and compilers you specify are installed and configured before final testing. Thus, the full hardware+software stack is validated.
System cooling and power supplies are also stress-tested. Depending upon the complexity and size of your order, systems will spend between one and four weeks in our test area. All components must withstand sustained 100% load for multiple days before they are approved for final QC and shipment to customers.
For safety, systems are boxed and shipped on pallets separately from the rackmount cabinet(s). Factory pre-wiring of the cabinets and/or onsite installation services are available for an additional fee.
