This is to be used for Bioinformatics by the Center for Bioinformatics and Sequencing. In a tender for 40M DKK CBS wanted a Supercomputer that could solve some of the world’s largest Life Science problems.
Go Virtual designed and delivered for hosting the Supercomputer:
With CBS’s specific need Go Virtual designed the following solution:
1TB, 4x E5-4610v2 Intel processors each 8 2,3 GHz cores and redundant shared storage
With CBS’s requirements in mind GoVirtual designed and delivered following Mellanox Infiniband interconnect solution:
With CBS’s needs for an Enterprise storage solution Go Virtual designed a solution from EMC:
Storage Solution- EMC Isilon +50GB/s
Cluster Management solution
Bright Cluster Management
Cluster Monitoring Solution
HP SIM tools
IRS – HP automatic notification system
HP monitoring tools
HP SW deployment Tools
Meeting CBS’s requirements GoVirtual and HP has designed and are in the process of building a cloud environment on top of the HPC cluster:
Here is a short presentation of what his done in the past:
The last 8 years as a solutions architect at HP designing solutions for HPC, Hadoop, High Available Linux Applications, HP-UX, CMU and also database solutions SAP HANA, Vertica and Oracle.
I have been working with Unix/Linux system the last 25 years with focus on performance at Digital/Compaq/HP.
AT HP I have been working together with Go Virtual on large deals therefore it was a natural step to join Go Virtual.
We wish him welcome, and hope he will enjoy working with us.
The Top500 list was announced in November, 2014, in New Orleans at the Supercomputing conference. Go Virtual has in close collaboration with our customers and partners sold and delivered two new systems during the last six months which have been qualified for the Top500. The new systems are:
Rank 121 – “Computerome” Center for Biological Sequence Analysis – DTU
The system is based on the HP Apollo 6000 XL230a and consists of 540 compute servers providing a Theoretical Peak (Rpeak) of 483.84 TFLOPS.
Rank 383 – Volvo Car Group
The system is based on the HP Cluster Platform 3000 and HP Proliant DL380p and consists of 456 compute servers providing a Theoretical Peak (Rpeak) of 204.3 TFLOPS.

I am a 31 years old female from Iran. I got my B. Sc.’s degree in mechanicalengineering in Iran and continued with the M.Sc.’s degree in the same field in Sweden. I worked around half a year for Epsilon AB as a calculation engineer at transmission group of Scania and then around 3,5 years at FS Dynamics AB as a CFD engineer. At FS Dynamics I had the opportunity to perform CFD simulations for different industries and work with different CFD software programs. I am looking forward to the new challenges in my new roll at GoVirtual.
Keep your HPC knowledge up to date by visiting this HPC Seminar and learn about the latest products from Intel, HP, Mellanox and NICE. Take the opportunity to meet others working with CAE/HPC. We will start the day at Go Virtual´s facilities in Göteborg with a breakfast and wrap it up with a
