As part of the multi-million dollar investment in LONI's expansion, the LONI Management Council is reserving a percentage of high performance computational capacity for corporations. The Governor encourages investment in Louisiana's growing high-tech industries.
"These enhancements to LONI's computing power will make the network particularly attractive to the kinds of companies we need here to energize our state's high-tech economy," said Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco. "That's why we're leveraging the state's investment in LONI by reserving 10% of the grid's computational power for the creation and retention of high-tech jobs. Simply put, any business in the state able to connect to LONI can use access to the network as an inducement to recruit companies that would benefit from world-class computational capacity."
