“Science is all about iteration and repeatability. But iteration is a luxury that is not always possible in the field of university research because you are often working against the clock to meet a deadline. With the increased compute performance and faster processing of the Cannon cluster, our researchers now have the opportunity to try new things, fail, and try again. Allowing failure to be an option makes our researchers more competitive. FASRC is dedicated to furthering research and we are confident that as demand for HPC resources continues to grow, the Lenovo system will support us for years to come.”

Scott Yockel,

University Research Computing Officer, Harvard University
