Making the Greater Impact with Greater Computing Performance

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Over the past year or so, due to global warming and climate changes, all parts of the world have witnessed extreme weather events that are more severe than ever before – such as storms, hails, floods, and fire whirls, etc.; and due to COVID-19 and its variants, people have experienced a drastic change in economic and physiologic well-being.


Heroes emerge amid the pandemic. Governments, medical professionals, and emergency response units have demonstrated their well-practiced expertise and dedication to their duties in this time of need, and the stay-at-home epidemic prevention measures that people cooperate with are also commendable efforts, playing heroes big and small in the rapidly changing world.

Academia and research institutions are the unsung heroes, taking preemptive measures to understand how to adapt to the changing world. The massive amount of data that came along with their research must be handled quickly and organized with an IT infrastructure that can accommodate faster computing, bigger storage, and flexible serviceability. GIGABYTE server products have track records of successes in assisting academia and research institutions with their studies, allowing the heroes to shine through in their respective fields.

Spain’s Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems

By using GIGABYTE servers, Spain’s Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems is pitting the world’s foremost server solutions against some of the world’s most pressing issues, including the effects of climate change, the effects of pollution, and the COVID-19 pandemic. GIGABYTE servers are up to the diverse and daunting tasks, because they are designed for high performance computing, intensive numerical simulations, AI development, and big data management.

Waseda University

Waseda University, the “Center for Disaster Prevention around the World”, has built a computing cluster with GIGABYTE’s GPU server and tower servers. They use it to study and prepare for natural disasters, such as tsunamis and storm surges. Efforts go into understanding the tropical cyclones of tomorrow, which are thought to become more dangerous due to climate change.

The Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the University of Barcelona (IQTC)

IQTC specializes in various areas of theoretical and computational chemistry. Their research covers the development of computational methods and simulations, the application of said techniques to problems in materials science, as well as the study of chemical reactions and biological systems, in which all benefited from the increased capacity of their data center built with a new cluster of GIGABYTE servers, and can all be easily managed with GIGABYTE’s proprietary multiple server remote management software platform.

A Top Technological University in Europe

As a research university, this illustrious European tech university’s strength is in fields of study that include engineering science, biochemistry, natural science, civil engineering, and mathematics. The academy is the alma mater of many renowned scientists, and has built a next-generation data center with GIGABYTE high density servers to advance their researches.

The College of Science at National Taiwan Normal University

The College of Science at National Taiwan Normal University utilizes the power of GIGABYTE HPC servers to play a critical role in modern-day scientific research. Its Department of Earth Sciences frequently analyzes meteorological data that involves turning a sea of information into accurate simulations of catastrophic weather events, allowing them to predict just about anything, from the amount of rain during monsoon seasons and extreme precipitation events, to the path a typhoon takes and how it will affect rainfall in areas with differing geography in Taiwan.
