Research boosted at University of Utah
The University of Utah’s Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC), USA, has selected HP storage and servers to reduce the data processing time required for research projects by up to 50 per cent. The CHPC provides large-scale high-performance systems to faculty and research groups that need advanced computing resources. However, its existing systems required days or weeks to complete a project, lacking the performance needed to process and deliver large quantities of information.
Upgrading to an HP converged infrastructure, the centre selected the HP X9320 IBRIX Network Storage System, which offers the benefits of a modular storage infrastructure with the capacity and performance of a scale-out architecture. It accommodates rapid storage growth, which is critical for CHPC environments and performance-intensive applications. The CHPC also implemented HP ProLiant SL160z G6 servers to boost performance and simplify management with HP Insight Control software that allows administrators to control the management and monitoring of the server infrastructure onsite or remotely.
