A recent HPCwire article illustrated Dell's strong track record of supporting research computing. It noted that over the past five years Dell and our partners have worked together to combine integrated server, storage and networking solutions. Specifically designed for hyperscale and research computing environments, the scalable, cost-effective usage models (such as HPC-as-a-Service and HPC in the cloud) simplify collaborative science, improve access to compute capacity and accelerate discovery for the research computing community.

The article also discusses the Active Infrastructure for HPC Life Sciences Dell introduced earlier this year, which reduces implementation timelines while allowing researchers to process up to 37 genomes daily and 259 genomes every week.

Most exciting, the HPCwire piece highlights some of the exciting work our partners are doing, including that of:

  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory

  • The University of California, San Diego

  • The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas, Austin


In another example of Dell's partnerships in research computing, a second HPCwire story focused on TACC's "Student Cluster Competition" win. Again, congratulations to the team from TACC, we're proud to be your partners.

 The tower at the University of Texas lit orange in honer of TACC's win!
