This new TGAC platform comprises two SGI UV 300 systems totalling 24 terabytes (TB) of shared-memory, 512 Intel Xeon Processor E7 v3 cores and 64TB of Intel P3700 SSDs with NVMe storage technology.
This combination of leading-edge technology allows TGAC researchers to benefit from the faster processing capabilities of the SGI UV 300, providing an extraordinarily powerful platform for genomics analysis.
In particular, the system will dramatically reduce the time to perform large genome assembly that TGAC researchers specialise in, as well as the analysis of wheat genotype and phenotype data generated by the Seeds of Discovery programme.
Dr Tim Stitt, Head of Scientific Computing at TGAC, said: "Continuing our successful collaborations with SGI and Intel in deploying novel and innovative computing technology, the new SGI UV 300 appliance with NVMe SSDs will undoubtedly be a leader in field of genomic analysis.
This enables TGAC to tackle fundamental problems such as increasing the yield of crops to keep up with the population growth.
By tightly coupling the Intel P3700 SSDs with NVMe storage technology with the latest generation SGI UV 300 system, SGI allows customers like TGAC to achieve extraordinary bandwidth and inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) and will keep TGAC research and productivity at the very top of this highly competitive worldwide domain of genomic analysis.
With the SGI UV 300 system, Intel Xeon Processor E7 v3 product family and Intel DC P3700 SSDs with NVMe, TGAC can now assemble large plant and animal genomes in record times that, until a few months ago, were impossible.
By tightly coupling the Intel[R] P3700 SSDs with NVMe* storage technology with the latest generation SGI UV 300 system, SGI allows customers like TGAC to achieve extraordinary bandwidth and inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) and will keep TGAC research and productivity at the very top of this highly competitive worldwide domain of genomic analysis.
The IFR and TGAC researchers are now hoping to use this information to elucidate exactly what it is that restricts certain L.
