Coming to Japan
1985 was the year that Mendez first came to Japan. Because of a research paper he wrote on supercomputers, he was invited by the researchers at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science to come to Japan to test the performance of a supercomputer developed by Hitachi, Fujitsu and NEC at that time.
Later in 1987, Mendez was scouted by Recruit Institute, which started a time-based rental business for Supercomputer usage. He joined as the head of the Supercomputer Research Institute, and worked his way up to be one of the board of directors in 1988. He served in that position until 1993.
