Monash University needed to construct a High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster to support its biomedical research efforts. The cluster needed to be easily expandable, and CPU power per dollar spent was a major consideration. The IT group within the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University assembled a cluster using Dell PowerEdge blade servers, Dell PowerVault storage and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, reinforcing Monash's position as one of the premiere biomedical research facilities in the world.
