Today’s university research is more reliant on high performance computing and data generation than ever. Our Higher Education clients benefit from our Research Computing and Research Networking knowledge, experience and foresight.

Computing Power for Maximum Performance

Matrix can help ensure your researchers are equipped with top-of-the-line, high-powered integrated hardware that has the necessary computing power to ensure researchers maintain maximum performance. High performance clusters help support your scientific research and life and material science needs for the continued advancement in research.

High Performing Data Connectivity

Research teams generate a lot of data. To advance this research, much of this data needs to be shared with their peers across the globe. The size of this data prevents traditional Internet technologies to transport the data effectively due to limited speed and bandwidth. Matrix has the right industry partnerships to enable researchers to connect to high performing, privately owned networks. These high speed Ethernet and Optical-Based backbone networks give the redundancy, flexibility and simplicity you need.
