Oxford chooses 11.52 TF Streamline Computing super for genetics work

Earlier this week UK HPC provider Streamline Computing announced a big win at Oxford University for an 11.52 TFLOPS machine to be installed at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

The new cluster is based on Dell M1000e enclosures which are fully populated with M600 Dell blade servers, 45 terabytes of direct attached storage and an Infiniband network backbone. The solution includes a dedicated Cluster Management Appliance (CMA) per compute rack, which in turn coordinates with a master appliance to monitor the whole cluster environment and to provide cluster command and control capabilities.

Here’s a link to the original press release.
