Fast and furious – developing an enterprise class environment for Team Lotus

When the newly formed Team Lotus asked us to help them build a trackside environment, and an HPC solution for their headquarters, it was a great chance for us to start from the ground up and create something really tailored to the needs of modern racing.

University of Sussex HPC - Shedding Light on Dark Matter

Many sub-atomic particles – one giant step for mankind. We may have flown to the moon, but we’re still in the dark about dark matter. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is carrying out trail-blazing studies that aim to turn the standard model of physics on its head. Which super-powered technology will it help unlock the secrets of the universe?

Blog & Video: Unlocking the mysteries of the brainThis is a featured page

A look into how the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging is using high performance computing (HPC) solutions from Dell to research & understand how the human brain functions. Link to blog & video

Video: Utrecht University

Proteomics researchers at Utrecht University talk about the Dell solution that's helping them keep data safe, secure and accessible. Their mass spectrometers determine a peptide or protein every 100 milliseconds -- producing vast amounts of data to support research into cell behaviour and diseases such as cancer. With the Dell DX Object Storage Platform, they have enormously fast backup, lower power and cooling costs, and high-speed data transfer with Intel processor technology.

Method for automated BIOS and BMC configuration of a Linux HPC for performance and manageabilityThis is a featured page

One of the initial steps in setting up a cluster is to configure the BIOS and the IPMI address on every cluster node. Optimal BIOS configuration can improve application performance as well as save power. IPMI configuration allows the cluster to be managed remotely. This blog post describes a set of scripts that can be used to set HPCC specific BIOS options and configure the IPMI controller on each node.
