Rave Computer Named Intel Partner Of The Year

RAVE Computer

Sterling Heights, MI — RAVE is proud to announce it has been named the 2017 Partner of the Year by Intel Corporation for its innovation in the Data Center Platform category. RAVE works with engineering and technology organizations who want advanced compute solutions optimized to deliver increased performance for their tailored applications. An expert computer hardware solutions provider, RAVE is considered a trusted advisor among customer base as well as a single source for technical computer hardware knowledge - from major OEM's, to supplier base and end customer.

RAVE became an Intel® Channel Partner Premier Member in 2005 and was also honored at the 2006 Intel Solutions Summit with the Rookie of the Year Award. Since then RAVE has won Intel® Partner of the Year six more times - 2009, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

For this year’s award, RAVE worked with the client to create a rugged 1U server, running on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2618L v4, which can act both as a field replaceable system to a defective system, as well as the next generation tech refresh system. RAVE’s design created a 1U solution that replaced four less efficient servers. RAVE achieved the goal of our client by reducing the footprint and power requirements of the on-ship datacenter nodes with a compact 1U rugged server featuring Intel’s latest multi-core processors.

“We are so very excited to accept this award and continue our proud tradition of earning Intel Partner of the Year recognition. Seven awards in 12 years is a testament to the innovation, creativity, and dedication to excellence of the entire RAVE team!” said RAVE President Sara Blackmer.

“RAVE Computer’s long-standing collaboration with Intel offers us the ability to deliver tailored solutions that perform exactly as needed. In this case, we optimized size, weight, and power in addition to adding ruggedization and virtualization to provide the client with an extremely efficient shipboard datacenter.” said Karl Rosenberger, Director of Product Development, RAVE Computer.
