Dell and Intel build three product centres at Cambridge University

Companies offering joint high-performance hardware systems

Article comments

Dell and Intel plan to open two "product centres of competence" at the University of Cambridge. An additional centre will also be announced at a later date.

Dell and Intel are offering joint high performance hardware systems based on the Intel Xeon multi-core processors and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.

The hardware at Cambridge will be available to train the scientific research community in optimising their existing HPC (high-performance computing) code, and testing the benefits the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor promises, said the suppliers.

Ensuring HPC code is highly parallelised and vectorised is critical to maximising application performance. The two Intel Xeon Phi product centres of competence at Cambridge will enable scientific researchers in the EMEA region to test these chips gainst their HPC needs.

"Collaboration with the scientific research community is the foundation of Dell’s suite of high performance and high throughput solutions,” said Tim Carroll, global director of Dell’s research solutions group.

“We provide solutions to scientific researchers whose needs range from workstation to petascale class machines. We are excited to bring this resource to life at Cambridge with our new PowerEdge C8000 series to drive innovation and discovery.”

Earlier this year Cambridge University became part of a £10 million joint UK and India ICT research project into next generation networks, which involves 200 researchers across the two countries.
