Dell has advanced its HPC (high-performance computing) portfolio. This includes new systems, the Intel Omni-Path Fabric and expansions to its HPC Innovation Lab.
The new HPC System Portfolio from Dell is a family of HPC and data analytics solutions that includes:
- HPC System for Geonomic Data Analysis is designed to meet the needs of genomic research organizations. Dell’s relationship with the Transitional Genomics Research Institute (TGen) has helped create a solution for identifying treatments in clinically relevant timeframes.
- HPC System for Manufacturing lets users running manufacturing design simulations using workstations, clusters or a hybrid environment. Use cases can be seen for finite element analysis or computational fluid dynamics with softwares from ANSYS and CD-adapco.
- HPC System for Research is a baseline architecture for applications involving complex scientific analysis.
Dell has also entered a new partnership with Intel as part of the Intel Fabric Builders program. This collaboration is working to support and expand the Intel Scalable System Framework, which offers Omni-Path Fabric technology, next-generation Intel Xeon Processors and the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre.
“HPC is no longer a tool only for the most sophisticated researchers. We’re taking what we’ve learned from working with some of the most advanced, sophisticated universities and research institutions and customizing that for delivery to mainstream enterprises,” said Jim Ganthier, vice president and general manager, Engineered Solutions and Cloud, Dell. “As the leading provider of systems in this space, Dell continues to break down barriers and democratize HPC. We’re seeing customers in even more industry verticals embrace its power.”
