Continuing the innovation.
With Data Vortex, Plexus truly began on the ground floor of an exciting breakthrough in high-performance computing. Larger computer manufacturers hadn’t been willing to work with such an early-stage concept. But at Plexus, we were eager to take on the challenge. Our team understood the significance of what Dr. Reed’s vision could accomplish, and we were willing to invest in exploring the idea along with him. In fact, it was just the kind of discovery, invention and difficult problem-solving we thrive on.
To this day, the relationship between Data Vortex and Plexus is uniquely collaborative. The Plexus team takes part in installations, supporting Data Vortex customers face-to-face. Our own Mike Ives and Senior Project Manager Bill Stube often present on behalf of Data Vortex at industry events or in customer meetings. Data Vortex even brings prospective customers to our Plexus facilities to showcase our ability to deliver — and our flexibility to ramp up to support their growing needs, including production manufacturing.
In many ways, Data Vortex counts on Plexus as their own research and development department. We have co-authored several patents with Data Vortex, and they’ve trusted us to expand their product line to include full systems, switches and interface controllers. We also continue to develop their next generation of products, tapping into every area of our service offerings.
Most of all, the longevity of our relationship speaks to just how much Data Vortex trusts Plexus to come through for them. For our part, we are proud to be part of this revolution in high-performance computing. We’re grateful for the trust Dr. Coke Reed and his team have placed in us. And we’re looking forward to the innovations we’ll continue to help Data Vortex bring to market.
