Exploring new energy sources and the fundamental structure of matter

Researchers at the University of Plymouth depend on high-performance computing (HPC) to explore new ways to harness wave power for generating electricity and to better understand the fabric of the universe. 
To provide leading-edge technology for research, the Plymouth HPC team needed a new cluster that could deliver outstanding performance while simplifying deployment and management.

Working with IT solution provider Viglen, the HPC team selected an Intel® Cluster Ready cluster with Intel® Xeon® processors. The new HPC resources are helping researchers uncover new insights in marine renewable energy and particle physics.

"With the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, researchers gain the raw compute performance and memory bandwidth they need to generate complex, high-resolution models and to analyse large data sets."
Peter Mills, Senior Computing Technician, University of Plymouth.
