NextComputing is a computer hardware manufacturer specializing in high-performance portable and "small-footprint" systems for customers in commercial and government markets. Our systems are used in a range of industries to run high-end applications, including network traffic analysis, real-time broadcast graphics, military intelligence gathering, and 3D medical imaging.
What It Means To Be Beyond The Ordinary
Our slogan, "beyond the ordinary," can mean many things, but most importantly it means we take the approach of providing unique computing products and services to customers who simply can't get what they need from the "ordinary" sources.
For example: our customers who need high performance computing in a portable package rely on our line of portable workstations when neither a typical laptop nor desktop workstation will suffice. For our customers who require high-end performance in a rackmount system without taking up unnecessary rack space or consuming too much power, our high-density rackmount systems are ideal. And for those who can't find exactly what they need in our catalog, we can create a custom solution for very little up-front cost.
Beyond our unique products is our complete suite of services that can add value to your business: whether it's enhancing your brand with eye-catching private labeling, managing complex hardware configurations and changes with our in-house manufacturing processes, or helping you bring your products to market more quickly by assisting with software testing and new product introduction, NextComputing can be your one-stop manufacturing and support partner to help your business grow.
Founded in 1999 by President and CTO, Bob Labadini, NextComputing started as a supplier of Sun SPARC and Solaris portable servers and workstations to primarily government and military customers. As the market for SPARC-based products diminished, we began to design and integrate Solaris and Linux portable systems based on x86/64-bit architecture, beginning with AMD's Opteron™ processors and adding the Intel® Xeon® family soon after.
Seeing a need in the portable computing market for high-performance systems with a more "commercial" form-factor we released the NextDimension, the first "flextop" portable computer, in 2005. The years since have seen us grow and evolve to meet the needs of both commercial and government customers in a variety of markets. Our"FleXtreme" architecture and modular systems design approach has allowed us to rapidly adapt to changing market needs by offering variants of our technology based on common technology building blocks.
