CSRA-Led Team Completes Updates to NIH Supercomputing Infrastructure - top government contractors - best government contracting event

computer, technologyA consortium led by CSRA has expanded a supercomputing cluster at the National Institutes of Health's Center for Information Technology in an effort to help NIH researchers process and analyze large data sets.

The company and its partners added the latest computing power increment to the Biowulf infrastructure that NIH uses to perform computations in genomics, image processing, statistical analysis and biomedical research projects, CSRA said Thursday.

CSRA managed the procurement, integration and installation of the components into the Biowulf system, including 1,080 new nodes and an additional 3.8 petabytes of storage.

The updated system incorporates compute nodes from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a Haswell processor from Intel, a large-scale storage technology from DataDirect Networks, FDR Infiniband interconnect components from Mellanox Technologies and Ethernet switches from Brocade Communication Systems.

The goal is to help researchers and scientists develop treatments for cancer, diabetes, heart conditions, infectious disease and mental health.
