Challenge
EGO needed a modern network to cope with the expansion of its laser interferometer.
Solution
The 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
