The Department of Phoniatrics and Pediatric Audiology at Erlangen University Hospital needed to increase its computing power to conduct meaningful analysis of vocal cord data. The department decided to use a Windows HPC Server 2008 cluster at the Regional Computer Center in Erlangen to increase its pace of research. Computations that used to take two weeks are now complete in a few hours, resulting in more thorough research.
