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
n'Space, a projector-based platform, is capable of implementing mixed reality without wearable devices. Users can immerse in a virtual environment and interact with 3D projections without the need to cover their faces with electronics. The real world just got an expansion pack in the infinite realm of the imagination. ArchiFiction, the company behind the invention, optimized the virtual experience with GIGABYTE's solution, which can process large amounts of data with high performance.
GPU-accelerated servers are used in industries such as oil and gas exploration to deliver powerful computing capabilities, helping to quickly and accurately analyze large and complex data sets to reduce exploration costs. GIGABYTE uses industry-leading HPC technologies to provide customers in the oil and gas industry with GPU-accelerated servers that deliver top-tier computing performance.
A top technological university in Europe noticed rising demand for computing services across its various departments. It decided to build a next-generation data center with GIGABYTE's high density servers. With the right tools in place, scientists were able to accelerate their research, analyze massive amounts of information, and complete more data-intensive projects. Science advanced while the institute flourished.
