Improving risk analytics, shortening product development cycles, and simulating the behaviour of materials at nanoscale have something in common—the need to model, forecast, and analyse complex relationships using Artificial Intelligence. High-Performance Computing will help your business meet the enormous demands on your data and compute infrastructure.

Meet these demands and realise faster time to value, improve critical decision making, fuel innovation, and accelerate results with powerful Lenovo high-performance computing (HPC) systems, storage, software, networking, and pre-integrated solutions for compute-intensive and big data applications. HPC solutions from Lenovo power the most forward-looking workloads, while lowering TCO and improving performance.

Lenovo Solutions for Engineering Analysis

The defence and transportation industries, including automotive, aerospace, rail, and shipping are rapidly changing. Financial pressures are growing while the expectation for innovation remains high with increased pressure for faster time to market.

Lenovo HPC systems, software, and integrated solutions provide you with an optimised high-performance infrastructure and managed environment for your product design and engineering applications. These offerings are ideal platforms to help accelerate the design and simulation of parts, components, or full-body simulations. Lenovo HPC solutions excel at processing and managing industry applications in diverse disciplines such as structural mechanics (structural integrity/vibration analysis/acoustics); computational fluid dynamics (aerodynamics/HVAC/cooling/combustion); explicit analysis (crash/impact); and computer aided design (CAD) via remote 3D Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

The Lenovo Solutions for Engineering Analysis offers a flexible, yet powerful approach to configuring and deploying low-cost, high-performance engineering clusters for computer-aided engineering (CAE). Using a domain-specific, building-block approach, Lenovo provides a fast and simple way of ordering and deploying optimised CAE clusters sized to your needs.

Lenovo Solutions for Healthcare

Personalised healthcare with novel drug and treatment options are advancing at a rapid pace. Healthcare and life sciences organisations are incorporating new methods of big data analysis, drug discovery, and delivery to enable personalised medicine and to deliver diagnoses and treatment regimens based on an individual’s unique genetic makeup reducing side effects and improving patient outcomes. Advancements like these are becoming a reality thanks to new genomic sequencing techniques, big data analysis, and process improvements, which utilise High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure for analysis and data management.

Lenovo offers high-performance and large memory systems, software, and solutions to meet the diverse needs of pharmaceutical, genomics, and healthcare companies. Providing an optimised, high-performance infrastructure and managed big data environment, Lenovo High-Performance Computing (HPC) solutions for Life Sciences are designed with a building-block approach to simplify cluster management and accelerate time-to-results for all your compute- and data-intensive computing needs.

Lenovo Solutions for Financial Services

With growing regulatory demands and increased focus on risk analysis, financial services companies are looking for better insights into market needs and ways to improve IT performance to meet these demands while reducing operating costs. Banks and other financial firms must constantly assess their risk exposure to comply with current regulations, using complex analysis that requires greater compute resources.

At the same time, brokerage firms, exchanges, and other trading organisations are implementing the latest high-frequency trading solutions to seize emerging opportunities and maximise gains. For these organisations, the race to zero latency continues. Finding new ways to increase workload performance, improve data throughput, and alleviate processing and networking bottlenecks is critical to achieve near-instantaneous decision making. Lenovo can help.

Lenovo and its ecosystem partners offer a broad portfolio of solutions that can help financial services organisations manage risk and capitalise on new opportunities without becoming locked into expensive, complex, proprietary environments. Solutions from Lenovo and its partners range from high-performance servers, storage systems, and networking equipment to file system and grid management software. These offerings enable organisations to accommodate compute- and data-intensive applications and deliver results rapidly.

University of Birmingham

Established: 1900
Student Body: 33,830
Nobel Prize Winning Alumni: 10

The University of Birmingham is the UK’s fourth-largest university. It’s data centre has limited air cooling capacity. Lenovo; the university’s Research Computing Team; and its business partner, OCF; co-developed a cooling technology that’s expected to cut cooling energy costs by up to 83 percent and permit substantially denser server configurations.
