Video: Fighting COVID-19 with HPE’s Sentinel supercomputer through the cloud

At HPE, we believe in being a force for good, so when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, HPE quickly made available supercomputing resources, along with a dedicated technical staff, free of charge to help scientists tackle complex research. That’s when we met Dr. Baudry and set him and his team up on HPE’s Sentinel supercomputer, which can perform 147 trillion floating point operations per second and store 830 terabytes of data. Sentinel – which is as fast as the earth’s entire population performing 20,000 calculations per second – is significantly accelerating discovery and saving months of research time and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
