Supporting Academic and Research Institutions with Reliable, High-Performance Technology Solutions
University researchers are under pressure to deliver faster results, often with limited budgets or even while awaiting grant funding. With research programs fueled by data-intensive computing methods, budget optimized, high-performance systems are the pathway to future discoveries. These critical systems must also execute multiple workloads with unpredictable volumes and computationally intensive tasks without missing a beat.
From individual workstations to large-scale HPC systems, both principal investigators and researchers have many choices to make when evaluating compute and storage solutions. These systems must meet your unique criteria:

The Van Andel Institute (VAI), based in Grand Rapids, Mich., is a nonprofit biomedical research and science education organization that is dedicated to determining the epigenetic, genetic, molecular and cellular origins of cancer, Parkinson’s, and other diseases and translating those findings into effective therapies.
Founded in 2005, University of California, Merced (UC Merced) is the newest campus in the University of California system with a focus on educating and training a highly diverse and underserved student population. With more than 65% of undergraduate students identified as first-generation college students, UC Merced continues to build on its growing reputation of excellence and innovation.
The high-performance computer at NYU Center for Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (CHIBI) was destroyed by flooding during Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, the laboratory’s director was able to unrack the data storage hard drives and rescue them from the advancing flood waters, but CHIBI needed to replace its computing capability quickly.
