The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is a publicly funded research council based in the United Kingdom, and one of the largest multi-disciplinary research organizations in Europe. Operating as part of the STFC, the Hartree Centre uses its capabilities for high-performance computing and big-data analysis to provide multi-disciplinary software development, simulation and modeling services to a wide variety of academic, commercial, industrial and government clients in the UK.
STFC Hartree Centre needed a powerful, flexible server system that could drive research in energy efficiency as well as economic impact for its clients. By extending its System x platform with NeXtScale System, Hartree Centre can now move to exascale computing, support sustainable energy use and help its clients gain a competitive advantage.
