Bull’s new viral campaign for its last initiative: “Accelerate innovation!”

As part of its 7i program, Bull has recently launched its latest initiative to democratize high-performance computing (HPC), with the aim of helping enterprises and research centers accelerate the process of innovation. Leveraging its experience in some of the world’s largest supercomputers, and in open systems, Bull is making available to any kind of organization a new range of high-performance computing solutions, which are:

  • Easy to implement: pre-configured and pre-tested ’turnkey‘ clusters running under Microsoft Windows or Linux environments
  • Simple to manage: thanks to a single point of control that enables the cluster to be administered as easily as a single system
  • Economical and compact, with the best performance/watt and performance/square meter ratios in their category.

As part of Bull’s innovative SWATS communication campaign, a special SWATS video and new ads on this second initiative are now available on Bull 7i Web site,
Modern, young and a far cry from traditional campaigns in this field, this viral campaign features the "Special Warriors Against The System”, a group of non-violent dissidents ‘fighting’ for an open world in order to bring enterprises the flexibility and liberty they need to strengthen their competitive position.

Discover it and defend the flag of an open world by spreading the word
