HP said this week that Systems Biology Ireland will use its storage technology to support its research programs.
HP said that SBI is using the HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage system, which has storage capacity in the "multipetabyte" range.
The ExDS9100 can hold up to 16 BladeSystem c-Class server blades with hundreds of terabytes of storage capacity, HP said.
In addition, the ExDS9100 uses a single management interface "that allows complete visibility to the performance utilization and capacity of servers and storage within the system."
SBI is a collaborative effort that involves a number of industry and academic organizations, including Agilent Technologies, Ark Therapeutics, HP, Protagen, Science Foundation Ireland, Servier, Siemens Ireland, and University College Dublin.
