Penguin Computing acquires remote access software assets from Colorado Code Craft

FREMONT, Calif. – November 17, 2022 Penguin Solutions announced that its Penguin Computing group has acquired all Colorado Code Craft software and intellectual property and welcomed Colorado Code Craft employees to the Penguin Computing team. The company specializes in secure remote work and collaboration software solutions for high-performance and fidelity remote visualization, including remote 3D visualization for applications running in the cloud, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) for technical computing.

Penguin and Colorado Code Craft have been working together since 2014 when they worked together to provide Penguin’s Scyld Cloud Workstation VDI platform as a remote visualization technology with the Penguin on Demand (POD) HPC cloud. The companies have since continued the partnership, adding numerous subsequent software releases and features to the product. Recent enhancements include support for 60 fps (frames per second) video updates and support for 4K video fidelity for demanding high-resolution workloads—all delivered through a standard browser.

“The data volumes and compute-intensive use cases for HPC and AI are increasingly leading to situations where data scientists and researchers are operating from locations far removed from the data center or cloud,” said Thierry Pellegrino, President of Penguin Solutions. “By adopting Colorado Code Craft’s powerful, browser-based remote viewing capabilities, we can offer our customers a secure way to deliver remote desktops and application streaming from any cloud or data center to any device, regardless of network conditions. This agentless solution accelerates user workflows by providing quick access to in-place data on the HPC/AI cluster and works without the need for any changes to applications or user workstations.”

Penguin’s Scyld Cloud Workstation software is based on Colorado Code Craft technology and continues to play a key role in Penguin on Demand (POD) offerings. The current user base consists of data scientists, researchers and engineers from various markets such as: energy, engineering, infrastructure, manufacturing, monitoring and assessment, oil and gas and research.

Additionally, the software is also integrated with Penguin’s new Scyld Cloud Central platform – and will also be available for use on Google Cloud Platform, POD and by Penguin customers who have dedicated HPC/AI cluster environments in their Data center or co-location use facilities.

“After a decade of developing remote visualization platforms and expanding innovative solutions for customers, we are excited to become a part of Penguin Solutions,” said Thomas Ruge, founder of Colorado Code Craft. “Together we will expand our customer base with both enterprise customers and technology partners in industries such as media/entertainment and distributed design/engineering who rely on the seamless remote application experience we can provide.”

The definitive agreement was signed on November 7, 2022 and the financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
