Industry-Leading Linux-Based Cluster Computing Company Rebrands, Relaunches as Sabalcore Computing, Inc.

ORLANDO, Fla.,  (Nov. 2, 2009) --- Tsunamic Technologies, Inc. is rebranding itself and relaunching as Sabalcore Computing, Inc.

Located in East Orange County, the company, which provides Linux-based cluster computing power to large-scale users such as the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command, secured the Sabalcore.com web domain and recently relaunched itself as Sabalcore, Inc.

Sabalcore’s cluster computing networks link hundreds of Linux-based computers to provide enormous online computing power to large-scale users at a fraction of the cost of in-house solutions, explained John Van Workum, president and chief executive officer.

"We chose to rename our company to more accurately reflect the Company's current growth, mission and vision for future growth and to clearly communicate our commitment to our customers. The name ‘Sabalcore’ is derived from the CPU ‘core’ found in modern processors and the ‘Sabal’ Palm tree which is indigenous to Florida and is remarkably steadfast, resistant to fire, floods, cold, high winds and drought.  By aligning our corporate name with our core business offering, we are communicating to the investment community and customers the Company's ongoing focus of quality service and performance,” Van Workum explained. 

Recently, Sabalcore won a major contract from the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) Geophysics Branch at China Lake, located in the northeast of California's Mojave Desert, to provide computing time that powers weather modeling and analysis in support of the Navy’s global battlefield operations.

“Sabalcore’s cluster computing networks were specifically designed to provide the enormous volume of computing power such complex calculations require,” Van Workum said.

Sabalcore’s high performance computing networks have played a key role in weather prediction, computer aided engineering, oil exploration, market analysis, genomics, helping communities predict the spread of infectious diseases, and modeling the benefits and effects of experimental pharmaceuticals.

Sabalcore Computing Inc. is a client company of the University of Central Florida’s Business Incubation Program in the Central Florida Research Park in east Orlando.
