HP Installs Linux-Based Server Cluster at Harvard/Partners Center for Genetics and Genomics

NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - HP has installed a Linux-based high-performance server cluster at the Center for Genetics and Genomics in Cambridge, Mass., a joint venture between Harvard Medical School and Partners HealthCare, HP said today.


The installation is part of a multi-million dollar 2003 sponsorship agreement between HP and HPCGG under which HP will develop a computational infrastructure to facilitate the use of genetic, genomic, and proteomic technologies in research and clinical medicine.


HP has installed a 64-node HP cluster platform 4,000 using its Linux-based XC system software. The cluster is part of the Partners Research Grid, a collaboration between HP and Partners to facilitate collaboration among researchers and clinicians at member institutions.
