Next-Generation Sequencing Application with WASAI on QCT POD for Medical (QPM)

In this age of AI and DL, medical researchers are focusing on real time health data capture, precise data analysis, as well as machine assisted analysis. Due to the trend of increasing data volumes, a scalable storage and data management system is more important than ever. Time and cost efficiency of resources are also critical issues when addressing complex tasks. Modernizing the infrastructure of servers, racks, storage, and networking is key to realizing medical innovation. The QPM (QCT POD for Medical), a Platform on Demand (POD) solution, provides the infrastructure and data management needed to meet the processing and storage requirements of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and DNA sequencing.

HPE APOLLO 80: Get Immediate Performance Boost By Giving CPUs High Bandwidth Memory

The recently introduced HPE Apollo 80 from Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a new addition to the arsenal of high-performance computing (HPC) systems tools that an organization can opt for when there are memory-bound and bandwidth-sensitive workloads. The adoption of the Apollo 80 is driven by the fact that many such applications can run dramatically faster on the system and this performance boost is accessible with lightweight porting and minimal tuning. Download this white paper to learn how organizations that are running memory bandwidth-bound applications can use the system to accelerate those workloads with a purpose-built CPU that is accessible to existing applications.
