Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Boden, who had been CFO, replaces Chuck Seitz, another of Myricom's founders. The Arcadia, Calif., company spun out of the California Institute of Technology in 1994 and sold its technoloy into clustered computer and supercomputer networks at universities and other such environments.

Don't Miss: The evolution of Ethernet

Boden will look to raise Myricom's profile as the company forges ahead with customized firmware for its high-speed Myri-10G Ethernet cards that are gaining ground at IPTV service provider networks, financial institutions and other customers beyond the HPC computing sites where Myricom made its early mark. The company boasts that it actually supports 20G on its cards, which each feature 2 ports.

We noted in an article late last year that Infiniband had rocketed up the list of Top 500 supercomputer implementations, with Myricom's Myrinet technology losing ground in this area as it refocuses on more mainstream markets.

Myricom competes vs. companies such as Intel and Broadcom.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
