The Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a compelling research resource not only for the university, but for our nation. It's mission is to advance the knowledge and understanding of our atmosphere and weather systems, as well as the universe. In addition to having access to technologies for measuring and observing weather patterns and our environment, supercomputing systems serve as a powerful tool in the research that is conducted on campus.

Dell has partnered with the University of Wisconsin–Madison to tune its supercomputing resources resulting in supercomputing clusters that now provide more accurate weather models from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).

The Dell S4 system with its 3,072 processing cores, is the largest and fastest computing system on campus. It’s an amazing resource for the UW-Madison campus, designed to provide a powerful computing system so researchers can conduct their work in a collaborative manner.
