The project began in March 2014 with both co-founders Raffi Manoian and Zohrab Tavitian. Their goal is to offer an energy efficient, fully scalable HPC which runs on many Linux distributions. Based on their experience with their first prototype, results showed that the system runs efficiently. They decided to develop the Rockhopper using components with higher performance. They grew their team and gained more support from engineers, developers and designers. The next stage is to deliver their product to the masses in order to build an online community that will encourage members to share their findings and to join a network of thinkers.
