This week Dell announced a tailored offering for the genomics set with its Active Infrastructure for HPC Life Sciences offering. Outfitted with up 32 nodes in a single rack, the company is pitching Infiniband, Lustre, Terascala and Bright Computing options at the sequencing set that they say wants to focus on science, not servers. The Intel-powered…
The data deluge in the life sciences is no where more acute than at Chinese genomics powerhouse BGI, which probably sequences more DNA than any other organization in the world. To turn that data into something meaningful for genomic researchers, the institute has begun to employ GPU-accelerated HPC to greatly reduce processing times. In doing so, BGI was able to increase computational throughput by an order of magnitude or more.
