High Performance Computing for Life Sciences

Boost your compute resources to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s health challenges and power life-sciences breakthroughs.

Solve the World’s Biggest Health Problems

Life sciences organisations face a variety of challenges that are amplified by emphasis on clinical outcomes and requirements for time-consuming physical testing of devices.  That’s why so many are turning to high-performance computing (HPC). Big problems need big compute, comprehensive software and industry-specific tools. HPE leads the way with HPC solutions to help modernise IT infrastructure and support cutting-edge, world-health initiatives, built using our HPE Apollo family of  supercomputers.

The Many Benefits of HPC in Life Sciences

We face major challenges such as sustainability of food and energy, improvement of health, and protection of our environment. Life sciences have a major role in all these areas and HPC-enabled bioinformatics is key to finding solutions. Increasingly affordable genome sequencing and ‘omics’ technologies drive new developments in bioinformatics and computational systems biology, with applications ranging from personalised medicine to the development of improved crops for food and green energy production.

A Tradition of Life Sciences Leadership

By 2025, between 100 million and 2 billion human genomes could be sequenced, according to a report published in the PLoS Biology journal. Our latest solution, the HPE Next Generation Sequencing solution, helps significantly reduce genome analytics processing time ultimately speeding discovery and development cycles. We’ve helped life sciences organisations overcome the challenges of system interoperability, new and complex processes and collaboration to transform their businesses and IT for over 50 years.

"We can now complete 41 genome assemblies in the time that it previously took to complete just five assemblies. That’s because of the faster architecture that we have from HPE. It’s faster, and you can run multiple things together."
