Announced earlier this year, the pan-European cloud computing project, Helix Nebula - the Science Cloud, brings together select IT service providers with leading research institutions, CERN, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). Representatives from all three centers will take part in a joint keynote session at the ISC Cloud conference, taking place this September in Mannheim, Germany. In this brief Q&A, they share their perspectives on the initiative and provide an outline of what's to come. Read more…

The need to analyze increasingly large amounts of genomics and proteomics data has meant that research institutions such as the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) allocate an increasing amount of to time and budget provisioning, as well as managing and maintaining their scientific computing infrastructure, areas that not their core business. A European IT company, powered by AWS is showing how cloud computing can mitigate these problems and get researchers back to their mission. Read more…
Did you miss out on Supercomputing 2017? Did you attend, but were stuck in meetings the whole time without an opportunity to walk the show floor and see what new announcements were being made? HPCwire's got you covered, we visited some of the hottest booths in the exhibit hall and spoke with their top executives to get the scoop on the latest solutions, partnerships, and product announcements.
From mismatches between compute and storage capabilities to colossal data volumes, data storage presents a number of challenges for scientific research. And as silos pop up and challenges expand, the pace of research often suffers.
As genomic data becomes ubiquitous, infrastructure bottlenecks for life sciences organizations are narrowing. But speedy analysis and real-time decision making don't have to remain out of reach: modern end-to-end systems are emerging as flexible solutions for a competitive edge.
