Challenge
High-performance computing (HPC) cloud pioneer, NCI, is part of the nationally federated Australian NeCTAR Research Cloud, and needed a platform to support high-impact science, such as climate change, earth system science and life sciences research.
Solution
NCI boosts research capabilities and intra-organization collaboration across Australia, and enables complex, data intensive workflows to support cutting-edge research with a Dell-based science cloud platform that integrates the best of HPC hardware and open-source software technologies.
Benefits
• NCI builds and operates infrastructure for the future using community-driven, open-source components
• NCI is equipped to deal with some of the world’s most ambitious scientific challenges around climate change, land use and the life sciences
• Australian researchers confident that the new platform can support Nobel prize-winning work
• Users nationwide gain access to an HPC science cloud to aid both compute and data-intensive workloads
