Silicon Mechanics Delivers 10x HPC Run Time Boost for Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation

[SPONSORED CONTENT]   In biomedical research it’s accelerate or perish. Drug discovery is a trial-and-error process driven by simulations – faster simulations, enabled by compute- and data-intensive technologies, mean more runs in less time, resulting in errors identified and solutions achieved. Established in 1946, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation is a nonprofit research institute with more than 450 staff and over 50 labs studying cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disorders and aging-related diseases. OMRF discoveries led to the first, U.S.-approved therapy targeting sickle cell disease and the first approved treatment for neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, an autoimmune disease.  The foundation’s research is enabled in part by advanced technology – accelerated clusters and high-performance data storage that support workloads fueled by massive data sets.
