Nationally recognized co-founders, Dr. Peter Kogge, Dr. Jay Brockman and Dr. Ed Upchurch, put together a team of world renowned computer architects at Emu Solutions. For the past five years, this team has been developing an Exascale-capable computing architecture designed specifically to tackle the ‘Big Data’ applications that are choking today’s supercomputers.

Emu’s proprietary enhanced memory server technology transforms business processes in fundamental ways by enabling analysis of complex, arbitrarily large, data relationships, with the ability to support real-time updates.

Emu has offices in South Bend, IN and New York, NY.



“Today’s computer architectures are basically the same as they were 50 years ago; no one could have predicted then the vast data sets organizations would employ today – it no longer makes sense to move mountains of data in and out of the CPU’s. At Emu we dared to conceive a computer that addresses this challenge from the ground up.” –Marty Deneroff
