HighFens Team - background

The HighFens team consists of experts with a long track record of building scalable environments independent of their size. The roots of the group are found in traditional High-Performance Computing (HPC). While workloads have evolved from compute-centric to data-centric, so has our knowledge. We offer customers HPC, Big Data, and AI expertise that is backed up by actual customer deployments.

We architect and design solutions for on-premises, in a public cloud or hybrid. The HighFens team understands the importance of automation to maximize flexibility and agility. Besides, the solutions we offer can handle a variety of workloads on bare-metal, virtual, or as containers (micro-services).

Data management is at the center of any modern architecture. Therefore, it is essential to understand how your data relates to the business. For instance, how do business processes and operations interact with data? And how does this impact the performance of the solution?  An inefficient architecture can significantly affect the bottom line. We have decades of experience solving the most challenging data problems.

The team acquired its reputation building solutions for large-scale Speech Recognition engines (HMM, Deep learning) for Enterprise and Consumer markets.
