PROVO, Utah (August 22, 2012) — Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software, today announced a strategic partnership and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT) to create a cloud operating system by integrating Moab Cloud Suite and an open source private cloud platform.
