Dell EMC is set to release new high-performance computing (HPC) tools to help companies accelerate their applications and research in the life sciences and data analysis sectors.

From early 2017, the Dell EMC HPC System for Life Sciences will be updated with the PowerEdge C6320p Server and Intel Xeon Phi processor. This, the company claims, will enable bioinformatics centres to discover treatments for patients faster, while also protecting sensitive data.

Cloud bursting services from Cycle Computing using AWS, Azure and Google will also be made available, although there's no solid date set yet for when this wil happen. According to Dell EMC, this will help businesses of all sizes orchestrate and manage their cloud between on-premise systems for day-to-day use and public cloud infrastructures for HPC needs.

Additionally, before the end of 2016, Dell EMC will be offering Intel HPC Orchestrator, based on the open source OpenHPC project, which it is claimed will ensure customers can install, manage and maintain HPC systems.

"Dell EMC is uniquely capable of breaking through the barriers of data-centric HPC and navigating new and varied workloads that are converging with big data and cloud," Jim Ganthier, senior vice president of validated solutions and HPC organisation at Dell EMC, said.

Dell EMC also announced its PowerEdge C4130 and R730 servers running Nvidia Tesla P100 accelerators are now available, with the University of Pisa is already using C4130 servers with Nvidia Tesla 100 accellerators and Nvidia Deep Learning GPU Training Systems for deep learning DNA sequencing.

"The global HPC market forecast exceeds $30 billion in 2016 for all product and services spending, including servers, software, storage, cloud, and other categories, with continued growth expected at 5.2% CAGR through 2020," said Addison Snell, CEO of Intersect360 Research. "Bolstered by its combination with EMC, Dell will hold the number-one position in total HPC revenue share heading into 2017."

Dell EMC customers will have access to Intel HPC Orchestrator by the end of this quarter, while Dell EMC HPC System for Life Sciences with PowerEdce C6320p Server and Intel Xeon Phi processor will be available by early Q1 2017.
