FedCentric to Build Postal Service Supercomputing System; Gerry Kolosvary Comments

datacenterChevy Chase, Md.-based big data company FedCentric Technologies has won a contract to build a high density supercomputing system for the U.S. Postal Service.

FedCentric uses Silicon Graphics International‘s high density systems to help the Postal Service process mail data as the agency handles nearly 160 billion pieces of mail per year, FedCentric said Oct. 3.

“The USPS uses our systems for visibility, reporting, sortation, fraud detection and deterrence, ” said Gerry Kolosvary, FedCentric president.

FedCentric will use SGI’s platforms and work to expand the agency’s Transactional Record Processor system.

“The current systems established the ability to process streaming mail piece data in real time, ” Kolosvary said.

“Future efforts will leverage this capability for additional high speed analysis and detection.”
