Serious computation for life and death research


Get the extreme power and storage needed for genomic processing and life sciences study. Dell HPC System for Life Sciences accelerates time-to-insight for a range of fields including drug design, cancer research, agriculture and forensics — and it:
  • Simplifies integration and workflow management with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) systems
  • Achieves fast results with maximum efficiency; processes 163 genomes per day with 10X the data samples and 54 genomes per day with 50X the data samples; completes a genome analysis in less than 8 hours*
  • Has a flexible design that scales from 4 to 40 nodes per system
Dell’s flexible, pretested configurations reduce lengthy implementation timelines from months to weeks and ensure lower upgrade and ongoing operational costs.

Storage


Storage
Sequenced data is written from NGS machines directly into the system’s computational scratch space. Researchers can network-access output data and user files for further investigation.

Scalable high performance storage systems are preconfigured, integrated and tested to reduce time to production from months to weeks. This solution features a 480-TB Intel® Enterprise Edition Lustre® file system, which acts as the fast scratch space for the solution; and 240 TB of High Availability (HA) Network File System (NFS) accessible storage.

Available options:
Dell HPC NFS Storage
Dell HPC Lustre Storage
Dell EMC Isilon NAS Storage
