Stanford University Dramatically Expands Compute Capacity
Source: Cisco Systems
Stanford University wanted to provide enough compute power for the in-progress and up-coming scientific research projects. and maintain Stanford's position of industry leader, which is required to attract the best talent and funding. The challenge was to work within the physical limitations surrounding space and power on campus. Stanford University deployed Cisco InfiniBand server switches, providing high-speed interconnects within a 212-node cluster of Dell Power Edge processors and Panasas storage solutions and automated software installation and configuration using Clustercorp Rocks+MOAB.
