Big Data & High Performance Computing

Every enterprise, regardless of size, needs information to grow its business in increasingly competitive marketplaces. With the dramatic rise in volume, complexity and diversity of data, traditional applications and methods are stretched to their limits and need a different approach: Big Data.



The Server Labs has years of experience in both traditional and cloud-based HPC and Big Data. We have successfully completed Big Data projects with organisations such as ESA, CNIO, Eumetsat and we are currently working with CERN and EMBL within the pan-European Helix Nebula initiative.


High-performance computing (HPC) has traditionally used supercomputers, computer grids and more recently, utility or cloud computing to solve advanced computational problems. Now HPC provides the base infrastructure for Big Data initiatives, and not only for science organisation, but across all industry sectors.
