Heterogeneous Supercomputer Advances Viral Research and Animal Health Case Study

When a deadly virus emerges, scientists must respond rapidly to characterize the virus, track its spread, and stop it from devastating livestock and possibly infecting humans. As a global leader in this work, the Pirbright Institute in the United Kingdom (UK) needs flexible high-performance computing (HPC) resources that can handle a wide variety of workloads. Pirbright deployed a Bull* supercomputer from Atos* powered by Intel® Xeon® processors. With a unified environment running its diverse applications, Pirbright enhances scientific productivity and helps policymakers respond effectively when a viral outbreak threatens.
