SGI Installs Server at NCI Computing Center

NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Cancer Institute's Advanced Biomedical Computing Center has selected SGI to provide its server, SGI said today.


The center, in Frederick, Md., put the server into production last month, the company said. The Altix 3000 server includes 64 Intel Itanium processors and runs on the Linux operating system.


The ABCC already has eight-processor origin 300 servers and one 64-processer Origin 3800 server. The servers will be used to model anti-cancer drug interactions with tumor targets, to analyze genomic data, and for other biological problems.
