In conjunction with the WARP program, the company also announced $100,000 in annual prizes to recognize emerging scientific breakthroughs enabled by technology, including a $75,000 first prize and a $25,000 second prize each year. A WARP board of advisors will be established to influence the direction of the WARP program and to select the annual WARP Prize winners.

"DDN has been a key strategic partner in helping TACC build one of the world's leading HPC centers, and we are pleased to partner with DDN to encourage innovation in academic environments everywhere," said Jay Boisseau, Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin. "By providing a forum for institutions at the forefront of the Big Data era, and by helping to fund the next generation of innovation, DDN has illustrated its commitment to our industry and to continuing its role as a thought leader in high performance computing."

"We work with DDN today because their technology leadership is a good match with our vision of research and enabling HPC collaboration," said Daniel Gruner, Chief Technical Officer -- Software at the SciNet High Performance Computing Consortium at the University of Toronto. "The WARP Program is a natural fit for DDN and the premier sites in the field of Academic Research."

"DDN became a leader in high performance computing by thinking 3, 5, or even 10 years into the future," said George Jones, DDN's Director of Strategic Sales and Higher Education. "We truly understand the value of research data being created in university settings, and our goal is to help researchers spend more time doing research and less time worrying if their data is safe and secure."

Further details on WARP's annual prize will be made available on DDN.com in December.
