SGI Installs Supercomputer at China HUPO for Human Liver Proteome Project

NEW YORK, Jan. 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Silicon Graphics has installed supercomputing and storage equipment with the China Human Proteome Organization, a member of HUPO, the two organizations said today.


The equipment, installed last September, will be used for the Human Liver Proteome Project, which is funded with $16 million from the Chinese government for a three-year pilot study, to be completed this year. Currently, 79 research laboratories, about half of them in China, participate in the project.


The equipment includes an SGI Altix 3,000 supercomputer, an SGI SAN solution, and an SGI InfiniteStorage Shared Filesystem CXFS. The location in Chinawhere these were installed was not immediately clear.
