Tasked with providing a high-performance yet cost-effective AutoCAD system to their engineering students, McMaster University deployed a Virtual Desktop Solution from Lenovo and i-Virtualize International. Running on Lenovo Flex System, the new AutoCAD system delivers improved user experience at about one sixth the storage space and one twelfth the power consumption of their old system.
“The Lenovo solution has increased our reliability, with zero downtime. The VDI solution has been a dream, from the standpoint of ease of management, sustainability and usability.”

Accelerating genomic research with LenovoBiogemma
Accelerating genomic research with Lenovo
Biotech firm Biogemma needed to ramp up its computational power to enable faster analysis of larger and more complex genomic data sets. By deploying an HPC cluster based on Lenovo NeXtScale nx360 M5, and a large-memory system based on a Lenovo System x3850 X6 server, the firm significantly increased performance—cutting run times from hours to minutes; typically over a 90 percent improvement—and eliminated the need to queue for computational resources.
“We have seen a very clear increase in the speed of computation with our Lenovo NeXtScale System cluster, which provides many more cores running at higher clock speeds. A job that used to take a day to run now completes in a matter of hours or even minutes – typically over a 90 percent improvement.”
-- Nathalie Rivière, Upstream Genomics Coordinator / Bioinformatics Manager, Biogemma
