As of June 8, 2018 the fastest supercomputer in the world is now active at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. Developed by IBM, the OLCF-4 or Summit supercomputer has been clocked at 200 petaflops. That’s 200 quadrillion operations per second! The Summit is 8 times more powerful than the previous system called Titan. This advanced computing technology is currently being used by the ORNL and also the US Department of Veterans Affairs for clinical research.
The Summit’s advanced architecture is helping them understand the genetic factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease, suicide, Alzheimer’s disease and more. Along with medical research, the Summit will also assist in our understanding of the universe, bolster US economic competitiveness and contribute to a better future.
ORNL has created a great infographic that helps illustrate the scale of this machine!
It’s a bit of a tradition for us to shower gifts upon newborns in the office. When we heard the news that a baby was on the way, we scrambled to get some custom gear printed immediately!
Our go-to vendor for short-run custom printing is Zazzle. The people at Zazzle are equipped to customize nearly anything you can think of using their state-of-the art equipment and technology.
We added something special to this onesie and t-shirt combo since the father is one of our support techs. There’s nothing wrong with teaching them early!
We are growing yet again and happy to expand the OmniSpear team! We would like to welcome our newest developer, Justin Weyant, who has just started with us today. Justin has years of experience and will make a wonderful addition to the skill set here at OmniSpear.
We have a common saying for many here at OmniSpear and it’s “Happy Birthday Porcha.” Well, today is actually the true birthday of Mr. James Porcha, so we had to make sure and legitimately wish him a wonderful day. Our lunch celebration consisted of pizza, sweets, games, and extreme competition (our classic combo). So for our team, it was a success. We can’t wait to wish James many more Happy Birthdays in the future.
We love receiving amazing notes about our fellow teammates. This latest review on James Porcha from our IT department makes us so happy!
“Every team has that “go-to-guy” that it counts on when the game is on the line. The legendary Michael Jordan was that “guy” for the Chicago Bulls Dynasty in the 1990s. Fast forward to 2016, LeBron James assumes “go-to-guy” status for the defending World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
OmniSpear, Inc. has its own version of “go-to-guy.” Most of us depend on computers daily. So when something goes wrong, we need that “guy” to turn to. OmniSpear’s version of MJ or King James is James Porcha, a help-desk technician at OmniSpear. With over 10 years in the IT field, I know James has the experience to help whatever issues arise.
It is interesting to note that this all started out as a hobby for James. His passion for technology was truly helpful to family and friends who encountered computer issues. It has now transitioned into a successful career. And you can count on James during times of need.
As stated on OmniSpear’s website, when it comes to buying or repairing computers and other technology, James has clearly established a reputation for himself as everyone’s – wait for it – “Go-To-Guy!”
Melink is an energy solutions company that strives to make building construction greener with a focus on integrity and innovation. For this project, our team was tasked with providing an overhaul to the main company pages, as well as microsite for their product, Intelli-hood. These sites represent two separate domains (www.melinkcorp.com & www.intellihood.com) but are seamlessly combined into a single overall theme. The sleeker design makes it simple to jump from site to site, while remaining in the company’s overall vision and branding. Each webpage is also responsive with clean layouts for easy navigation. We are proud of the redesign and think Melink has a fresh face forward as they continue to expand.
OmniSpear is very excited to roll-out our first billboard ad campaign. We’ve recently put in place two brand new ads on the digital billboard located on I-75 N just before Downtown near the Dryden exit. Keep on the lookout for our digital spots, including this special kitty ad that you can’t miss. We are so proud to be a part of the Dayton community and work with our local businesses.
