Decoding the Storm with GIGABYTE’s Computing Cluster
Waseda University, the “Center for Disaster Prevention around the World”, has built a computing cluster with GIGABYTE’s GPU server and tower servers. They use it to study and prepare for natural disasters, such as tsunamis and storm surges. Efforts go into understanding the tropical cyclones of tomorrow, which are thought to become more dangerous due to climate change.

GIGABYTE Servers Enable Faster and More Accurate Modelling and Analysis
Historical and future simulations of storm wave conditions in the Baltic Sea. Studies suggest we can expect future storms to become stronger under extreme climate warming scenarios, such as those outlined in the CMIP5 models presented in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report.

One: AMD EPYC™ Processors and GIGABYTE’s Expert Consultation
The G221-Z30 GPU Server acts as the control node of the cluster due to its excellent performance. It also has ample storage space, eliminating the need for external hard drives.
Two: Inventive Thermal Design Keeps Things Cool during Long Simulations
The W291-Z00 AMD EPYC™ UP Tower System can serve as a high-performance business server or a node in a computing cluster. It comes with SCMP and dynamic fan speed control.
Three: Future-Proofing with Cutting-Edge Technology and Excellent Quality
By using GIGABYTE, Spain’s Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems is pitting the world’s foremost server solutions against some of the world’s most pressing issues, including the effects of climate change, the effects of pollution, and the COVID-19 pandemic. GIGABYTE servers are up to the diverse and daunting tasks, because they are designed for high performance computing, intensive numerical simulations, AI development, and big data management.
The Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the University of Barcelona has increased the capacity of their on-campus data center by over 40% with a new cluster of GIGABYTE servers. Hundreds of researchers will benefit from the computing power of AMD EPYC™ processors. Administrators can easily manage the cluster with GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM), a proprietary multiple server remote management software platform provided for free by GIGABYTE.
Arizona’s Lowell Observatory is studying the Sun with GIGABYTE’s G482-Z50 GPU Server in an effort to filter out “stellar noise” when looking for habitable planets outside of our Solar System. The server’s AMD EPYC™ processors, parallel computing capabilities, excellent scalability, and industry-leading stability are all features that qualify it for this astronomical task, making the discovery of a true “Twin Earth” achievable within our lifetime.
