Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Ace Computers announced that it is integrating the latest Microsoft operating systems into its HPC clusters and workstations.

CHICAGO, ILL., U.S., November 24, 2017 / -- Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Ace Computers just announced that it is integrating the latest Microsoft operating systems into its HPC clusters and workstations—most notably Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 Pro Workstation Edition.
Ace Computers CEO John Samborski said, “We have been working closely with Microsoft since 1983 to integrate MS operating systems into our industry-leading clusters and workstations. Although we offer a number of Microsoft operating systems, the most in demand are Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 Pro Workstation Edition.”
Windows Server 2016 offers a host of new features including:
• Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS): to authenticate users stored in non-AD directories.
• Windows Defender: Windows Server Antimalware installed and enabled.
• Remote Desktop Services: Support for OpenGL 4.4 and OpenCL 1.1.
• Storage Services: Central Storage QoS Policies; Storage Replicas.
• Failover Clustering: Cluster operating system rolling upgrade (Storage Replicas).
• Web Application Proxy: Pre-authentication for HTTP; HTTP to HTTPS redirection.
• IIS 10: Support for HTTP/2.
• Windows PowerShell 5.1.
• Windows Server Containers.

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations maximizes every aspect of high-performance workstations--scaling up across a high number of logical processors and large amounts of memory. The architectural changes in the Windows kernel take full advantage of high-end processor families that package a large number of cores. Windows 10 Pro for workstations includes:
• ReFS (Resilient file system): ReFS provides cloud-grade resiliency for data on fault-tolerant storage spaces and manages very large volumes with ease.
• Persistent Memory: This provides the most demanding apps and data with the performance they require along with non-volatile memory module (NVDIMM-N) hardware.
• Faster File Sharing: This includes SMB Direct, which supports the use of network adapters that have Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) capability.
• Expanded Hardware Support: Microsoft is expanding hardware support. Users will now be able to run Windows 10 Pro for Workstations on devices with high performance configurations

“In addition to affording us preferred partner status, our long relationship with Microsoft gives us access to a level of MS expertise that most of our competitors do not have,” Samborski said. “Microsoft trusts us to build hardware that maximizes the power of their operating systems.”
