Options for Research and Educational Computing
East Carolina University's SGI Origin 350 (Zeus) offers high-performance computing using hardware and software solutions specifically optimized for complex technical research computing tasks.
The independent, modular scalability of CPUs, I/O bandwidth, system bandwidth, memory, storage, and graphics make the SGI Origin 350 an ideal choice for solving large, complex computational problems. Easy integration with educational visualization and data management further maximize this research solution.
The Department of Biology maintains two HPC machines to facilitate and improve research in bioinformatics, large-scale ecosystem analysis, spatial statistics and phylogenetic analysis. The HPC core consists of an IBM BladeCenter server and a Dell PowerEdge R910 Server providing parallel computing capacity and scalable infrastructure with standard x86 server technologies.
