New Tech and Systems Tuning in the Dell HPC Innovation Lab 01:45

Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab

Dell EMC is committed to enabling more organizations to use high-performance computing (HPC) for innovations and discoveries. This passion for innovation has helped make us an industry leader in HPC clusters, storage, networking and software.

We’ve architected a world-class HPC ecosystem along with our partners at the Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab in Austin, Texas. The 13,000 square foot data center houses thousands of servers, a TOP500 cluster, sophisticated storage and network systems for HPC.

Dell EMC has made a major investment in two powerful HPC clusters housed at the Innovation Lab, and we are continuously expanding and improving each system.

Solutions and services

The HPC Innovation Lab gives our customers access to cutting-edge technology, like the latest-generation Dell EMC products, Scalable System Framework from Intel, InfiniBand gear from Mellanox, NVIDIA GPUs, Bright Computing software, and more. Customers can bring us their workloads, and we can help them tune a solution before the technology is readily available.

Take advantage of an unparalleled opportunity
The Innovation Lab resources are available at no cost to customers and partners, enabling them to test applications at scale with large data sets — for application benchmarking and platform characterization for their unique HPC workloads. The opportunity to develop and test configurations with an expert team prior to deployment reduces risk. And because your resulting HPC system is tuned for optimized performance from day one, your team can get to research faster, resulting in a better return on investment.
