ChallengeThe next-generation genome sequencing technologies that TGen uses for a neuroblastoma trial generate a tremendous volume of data. To process this information in a timely manner, TGen needed to build a new HPC cluster.
SolutionWith the help of Dell, TGen rolled out a cluster of Dell™ PowerEdge™ blade servers with Intel® Xeon® processors.
Benefits• 12-fold improvement in processing power for patient data
• 3-fold more cores in same floor space
• Scalable solution supports 100 percent annual growth in data volume
• 800 server cores managed by one IT administrator
