Data Vortex Technologies Partners with Providentia Worldwide to Develop Novel Solutions
AUSTIN, December 6 – This November, proprietary network company Data Vortex Technologies formalized a partnership with Providentia Worldwide, LLC.
Providentia is a technologies and solutions consulting venture which bridges the gap between traditional HPC and enterprise computing. The company works with Data Vortex and potential partners to develop novel solutions for Data Vortex technologies and to assist with systems integration into new markets.
This partnership will leverage the deep experience in enterprise and hyperscale environments of Providentia Worldwide founders, Ryan Quick and Arno Kolster, and merge the unique performance characteristics of the Data Vortex with traditional systems.
“Providentia Worldwide is excited to see the Data Vortex network in new areas which can benefit from their fine-grained, egalitarian efficiencies. Messaging middleware, data and compute intensive appliances, real-time predictive analytics and anomaly detection, and parallel application computing are promising focus areas for Data Vortex Technologies,” says Quick.
“Disrupting entrenched enterprise deployment designs is never easy, but when the gains are large enough, the effort is well worth it. Providentia Worldwide sees the potential to dramatically improve performance and capabilities in these areas, causing a sea-change in how fine-grained network problems are solved going forward.”
The senior technical teams of Data Vortex and Providentia are working on demonstrating the capabilities and performance of popular open source applications on the proprietary Data Vortex Network.
The goal is to bring unprecedented performance increases to spaces that are often unaffected by traditional advancements in supercomputing.
“This is a necessary step for us – the Providentia partnership is adding breadth to the Data Vortex effort,” says Data Vortex President, Carolyn Coke Reed Devany.
“Up to this point we have deployed HPC systems, built with commodity servers connected with Data Vortex switches and VICs [Vortex Interconnect Cards], to federal and academic customers. The company is now offering a network solution that will allow customers to connect an array of different devices to address their most challenging data movement needs.”

Moonshot Research and Providentia Worldwide Collaborate on HPC and Big Data Services for Industry
Nov. 10, 2017 -- Moonshot Research LLC (Champaign IL) and Providentia Worldwide, LLC (Washington D.C.) have agreed to jointly offer business and technical services and consulting in the areas of high-performance computing and big data services. The Moonshot/Providentia team brings expertise in driving ROI in enterprise computing by focusing on best practices in HPC, cloud and enterprise IT.
Merle Giles, CEO of Moonshot Research said, “I am absolutely delighted to work with the world’s experts in using HPC to achieve real-time analytics. Speed has become the ultimate competitive advantage in the world of technology-enabled products and services. The impact of utilizing our customer-first approach to industrial innovation and ROI are substantial.”
Ryan Quick and Arno Kolster of Providentia Worldwide are pioneers in adopting a hybrid approach to analytics, using techniques and software typically deployed independently in cloud, enterprise and HPC workflows. Their adoption of HPC solutions for real-time fraud detection at PayPal was unconventional, yet proved to be the perfect solution for achieving extreme data ingestion rates and rapid machine-driven decision making.
Giles brings a business sense to this mix of technology integration after proving the impact of his customer-first approach at NCSA’s Private Sector Program at the University of Illinois. Together, the Moonshot/Providentia team of experts offers independent, vendor-agnostic solutions that result in reduced time-to-solution, scale and increased certainty at less cost.
Giles, Quick and Kolster have each earned awards and recognition from HPCwire. All three are members of Hyperion Research’s HPC User Forum steering committee and have been invited speakers in numerous countries around the world. Giles was co-editor of a 2015 book entitled Industrial Applications of High-Performance Computing: Best Global Practices published by CRC Press.
