A message from our Co-Founder & Senior Partner,
Owen Thomas

I founded Red Oak Consulting back in 2004 to bridge a gap, that I felt was existing, in the niche sector of High-Performance Computing.  My ambition was to build a company focused on a strong customer ethos providing expert advice and professional solution delivery.
I am proud to say, this ambition has become a reality.  Our core values of Professionalism, Integrity, Expertise, Customer First, Reliability and Trust is at the heart of everything we do.
Our team of technical experts are highly skilled, driven, and passionate about delivering a high quality of service to all our customers.
As you scroll through our website, you will see that the team at Red Oak Consulting team are renowned for their expertise and remain unrivalled in the number of completed HPC projects successfully delivered.  Having delivered such a diverse project base, gives our team that knowledge that you can only achieve through experience and over time.  We continue to lead the way in assisting many corporations and institutions both here in the UK and overseas.  Our mission is simple, we look to implement HPC solutions not just suited for your business needs of today but to incorporate future strategies and plans for growth, allowing for a strong and sustainable future.
As we all look to the future, there is only one thing that remains certain, and that is change.  And it is that change where we can remove potential stress and fear.  So, whether you are new to HPC, looking to complete a refresh, build a strategy or business case to compare cloud computing, or looking for on-going managed support, we would be delighted to talk to you and assist you on your journey.
