Time Lapse Video of HP POD Install

When iVEC needed to deploy an HPC cluster including 800 servers, a QDR IB network, and 500 TB of Lustre storage, for researchers in Western Australia, they turned to HP’s Performance Optimized Datacenter shown being installed in the time lapse video below.

According to the Top500 List, the iVEC system is the 108th fastest supercomputer in the world. According to researchers at Murdock University in Perth, it is the fastest supercomputer in Western Australia, and more importantly is up and running today, long before they could have even started to build a conventional bricks and mortar data center.
