Dell Technologies Interview: Wirth Research Talks (and Walks) HPC for Cutting Carbon Footprints

[Sponsored Content]  In this interview, part of our series conducted on behalf of Dell Technologies, UK-based engineering firm Wirth Research talks about using HPC to cut its clients carbon footprints – specifically, supermarket companies.

But as Wirth’s Rob Rowsell explains, Wirth also walks the energy efficiency walk. Two years ago, when the firm decided to overhaul its engineering IT infrastructure, Wirth decided to house its Dell Technologies-based HPC gear (or “kit,” as Rowsell says) in geothermal-powered (zero carbon energy source) Verne Global, which is located in Iceland. The greenhouse gas cutting results Wirth delivers for its clients and for itself are impressive.
