University Speeds Research and Enhances Researcher Agility With HPC System
The Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of California at Los Angeles is dedicated to the development of scientific approaches for the comprehensive mapping of brain structure and function. Until recently, researchers who wanted to use the LONI HPC cluster needed both expertise in working in a Linux environment and extreme patience. The system was so heavily used that they typically had a long wait before getting access to the resource. LONI decided to try the Cray CX1 deskside supercomputer running the Windows HPC Server 2008 operating system.
