HPC has a growing role to play in genomic sequencing
The growing importance of high-performance computing (HPC) in the life sciences was highlighted by two announcements this week of genome research centres upgrading their HPC infrastructures.
Public Health England (PHE) and The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (National Centre for Genome Analysis) (CNAG) in Barcelona have upgraded their HPC resources to enable faster and more effective analysis of genome sequences, with the eventual goal of developing genomic science to the point where it can be used in personalised medicine.
Why The Next-Generation Data Center Needs To Be Agnostic

In order to handle the growing traffic deluge, data centers need to leverage open infrastructure, software-defined technologies, and automation.
Our current compute model has opened up numerous new possibilities into data delivery, content management, and overall improvements in user experience. The reality is simple: If you're carrying a smart device, you're probably connected into a data center somewhere. This certainly wasn't the case a few years ago. Users are demanding a continuous flow of information to any device, anytime and anywhere. Mobility has become the new normal.
