The University of Cambridge powers scientific research involving massive data sets with an energy-efficient, optimized high performance supercomputing infrastructure comprising 2,500 Dell PowerEdge servers.
A high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure developed by the University of Cambridge together with Dell Technologies revolutionizes what researchers can accomplish. It took scientists only 6 months to double the system’s energy efficiency.
The need for data in clinical medicine is growing at an inordinate rate. Dell and the COEL at the University of Cambridge have collaborated to build the UK's largest academic supercomputer to solve some of the world's most demanding research and health-related problems.
In this interview, conducted on behalf of Dell Technologies, insideHPC spoke with Dr. Paul Calleja, from the Exascale Lab and the University of Cambridge, about the Wilkes3 supercomputer, currently ranked no. 4 on the Green500 list.
