Scientists Boost Productivity With User-Friendly High-Performance Solution
Nile University is a non-profit privately owned research university in Egypt. The life-science researchers at CIS need to analyse huge amounts of biological data to compare genomic sequences. Using conventional computers this would not be possible, so high-performance computing (HPC) is vital to their success. Scientists at the Centre of Informatics Science (CIS) at Nile University worked with Microsoft to migrate their open-source applications for bioinformatics to Windows HPC Server 2008. With a user-friendly interface and advanced job-scheduling and deployment features, CIS researchers have succeeded in developing their applications 50 per cent faster than previously, and now enjoy easy-to-use tools that improve research speed.
