Florida State Deploys Dell Computing Cluster

Florida State University has recently unveiled its new Dell high-performance computing cluster, housed at FSU's main data center in Tallahassee. Onsite installation was provided by the company and completed in four weeks, according to Dell.

"Working with Dell, FSU faculty and staff have come up with an innovative approach that allows for a continuously evolving computing capability which fills the gap between large national facilities and a desktop computer," said Kirby Kemper, vice president of Research at Florida State, in a prepared statement. "This new cluster builds on the concept originated at FSU of utilizing PC computer cluster farms for tackling problems that are computing-intensive."

The new technology will be used in a number of research projects where computer modeling is critical, including the prediction of forest fire behavior and noise reduction in jet engines.

Florida State University is located in Tallahassee with more than 38,850 students currently enrolled.
