Unlocking Life's Secrets at Columbia University
Can Intel processors enable progress on the most demanding life sciences applications - and do it within the strict floor space and power constraints of a Manhattan data center? One of the largest academic computing centers devoted to molecular and systems biology says yes. Columbia University's Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (C2B2) has installed an HP ProLiant Server Blade with 928 low-voltage Intel Xeon processors 5400 series. C2B2 says the machine is helping scientists advance their research while saving USD 95,000 annually in energy and cooling costs.
