Founded in 2011
Spearhead Systems was founded in 2011 with 100% Romanian capital and ownership. Our focus from the beginning has been to be highly specialised in the delivery of IT services and cloud computing.
Spearhead Systems implements the cutting-edge monitoring solution Checkmk for the National Bank of Romania (currently monitoring the entire Transfond & SWIFT system, as well as the “corporate” network of NBR and other important components of the bank).
Spearhead Systems implements the largest HPC Shared Memory System in Eastern Europe based on SGI technology, now part of HPE. The system is used by researchers to aerodynamically analyze the re-entry of a capsule into the Earth’s atmosphere at MACH 10 and MACH 20 speeds, for incidents starting from 0° to 180° amongst other number crunching jobs.
