Dell Technologies Bolsters the University of Pisa's Remote Education and Critical Medical Research Projects with Dell EMC PowerStore
- Dell EMC PowerStore's end-to-end NVMe design delivered 6x performance improvements for scientific computing applications at the core of the University's research efforts
- The university adopted Dell EMC PowerMax and experienced 5x faster data processing and 80% better performance for its essential applications, accelerating application and data access
"As we transitioned to remote learning, we needed reliable, scalable technology to provide our 53,000 students and faculty with quick, easy access to critical data and applications at all times, from any location," said
The university uses Dell EMC PowerStore to store scientific computing applications for genomics and biology, plus chemistry, physics and engineering. PowerStore's NVMe-based, adaptable design delivered a 6x performance improvement on previous storage infrastructure, making applications faster and easier to access. PowerStore's deduplication and compression capabilities also have allowed the university to realize 3x capacity savings when compared to its previous storage infrastructure. PowerStore's AppsON capability, which allows storage administrators to run applications directly on the storage array, has greatly simplified application and data mobility throughout its four data centers spread across the city.
"Performance and availability are key for institutions like
The university's storage infrastructure also includes a Dell EMC PowerMax storage array to support VDI and remote workstations and database workloads. With PowerMax, the university has experienced 5x faster data processing and 80% better performance for its essential applications, allowing them to access key research and applications faster than before.
In order to support demanding artificial intelligence (AI) and bare-metal high performance computing (HPC) workloads,
