The ERA Foundation has made a medium sized investment in Concurrent Thinking.
Concurrent Thinking is based in Warwick, UK, and has a long heritage in the design and implementation of large-scale computing infrastructures and software for High Performance Computing. Our background provides us with a unique perspective on holistic approaches for system management and the design of scalable computing products that can meet the requirements of the next-generation data centre.
The company was founded by Michael Rudgyard. In early 2010, the company received investment from the Mercia Funds (I and II) and the Early Advantage Fund, as well as other existing investors, in order that it might exploit its HPC technology within the broader data centre marketplace. Soon afterwards, Carbon Trust Investments Ltd made a strategic investment on the basis of our ability to monitor and actively manage power (and hence minimise Carbon emissions) within the data centre.
The ERA Foundation non-executive director on the Concurrent Thinking Board is Mr David Wilson
