European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) improves its range with revamped IT
Date : 3/1/2016
We’ve saved more than 60 per cent on hardware alone while performance has increased and the number of available CPUs has tripled, giving us a threefold improvement in processing power.

ChallengeEGO needed a modern network to cope with the expansion of its laser interferometer.
SolutionThe observatory completed a comprehensive upgrade of its data centre that included Dell Networking switches, a Dell PowerEdge converged platform with Intel® Xeon® processors, and Dell Storage.
Benefits• Faster network with higher throughput allows worldwide scientific community to react to events more quickly
• Downtime and related costs virtually eliminated with resilient network
• EGO has an infrastructure designed to match its growth as it explores 1,000 times more of the universe
• Virtualized server environment results in threefold increase in processing power
