In many instances, supercomputing solutions built for customers are firsts, fastest, largest or most unique. When you're working on the leading edge in this way, problems and hold-ups can and do occur. In this case it is essential for customers to know that the main players in any supercomputing project - the integrator and the
primary hardware vendor - have a good relationship that ensures projects are run as efficiently as possible. It is imperative that customers should look for evidence of this relationship when selecting partners for their supercomputing solution.
