Durham University.  Building a powerful new community resource for cutting-edge science

Pushing the boundaries

The N8 Research Partnership worked with OCF and IBM to create Bede—an advanced computing facility based on IBM® Power Systems™ servers with IBM POWER9® processors and NVIDIA GPUs—housed at Durham.

High-performance computing (HPC) is an increasingly important element in driving new scientific breakthroughs. As the sensors and imaging equipment used to monitor scientific experiments become more sensitive and sophisticated, the volume of data that needs to be processed and analysed is growing rapidly. And at the same time, researchers are building ever more detailed models and simulations to complement and explain their experimental findings.
