Challenge
At the University of Oklahoma, the “OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research (OSCER)” provides massive computational resources to researchers worldwide and must keep them updated, so knowledge can grow — and costs don’t.
Solution
OSCER’s staff chose a Dell™ High-Performance Computing (HPC) solution designed to harness 436 nodes of CPU power capable of 111.6 trillion calculations per second.
Benefits
• Increases computational power, expanding researchers’ reach
• Enables tornado research that can help save lives
• Designed to deliver three times its predecessor’s speed at the same cost
• Intended to use 20 percent less power, saving costs and lowering environmental impact
• Requires 28 percent less space for the entire system
