    ALMA Observatory (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array)

    • Chile’s ALMA Observatory uses Dell Technologies solutions to search deep space and unlock the secrets of our universe

    • Chile’s ALMA Observatory uses vast amounts of computing power from Dell Technologies to integrate and preprocess radio wave data captured by its 66 antennas, then moves it to scalable storage, also from Dell Technologies, to archive the data for today’s generation of researchers as well as for generations of researchers to come.

    • It can take weeks to process some large data sets, so the performance and reliability provided by Dell Technologies are critical to the pace of research in our scientific community.

    • Images from billions of light years away

      In the arid, remote Atacama Desert 5,000 meters above sea level sits the $1.4 billion ALMA Observatory, the most ambitious terrestrial astronomy facility of all time. Dell Technologies supplies data processing and storage to aid researchers in their work.
