Helping Us Look Deeper into the Universe

The Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) is under constant pressure to increase the performance of its HPC capacity as the volume of raw data it needs to process continues to expand. To meet the task, Nikhef wanted to work with a technology provider whose products could maximise the efficiency and calculation power of the server processors per euro invested.

In its most recent HPC investment, Nikhef expanded the infrastructure with 93 Dell EMC PowerEdge R6415 servers, featuring AMD EPYC™ 7551P processors. Nikhef tested demo units of the servers extensively. By choosing a single socket, Nikhef ensured that all of the servers’ processing capacity was available for data analysis. This makes the solution 20 percent more efficient than competing dual-socket systems.
