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. Read more…

The MD Anderson Cancer Research Center at the University of Texas is gearing up to become the home of the world's largest private cloud dedicated to understanding genome-cancer links. Read more…
A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.
This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
