Spain’s IFISC Tackles COVID-19, Climate Change with GIGABYTE Servers
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.
SuMaECO and Xylella: Protecting the Mediterranean’s Surf and Turf
As the world gets warmer, the plant pathogen Xylella fastidiosa is spreading to previously unaffected locations, such as the olive groves of Italy. The IFISC wants to develop an algorithm that can detect possible outbreaks through satellite imagery.
ARCTIC and VPP4ISLANDS: Going Green in a Smarter Way
“Flight delay propagation” refers to the snowball effect of wasted time and resources caused by a single delayed flight. The IFISC aims to establish a set of best practices and improve air travel efficiency with data analytics and machine learning.
DISTANCIA-COVID: Vivisecting the Virus by Monitoring Mobile Data

The R282-Z91 features 24 bays in a 2U chassis. The IFISC has a computing cluster made up of 20 nodes of these servers, and they support just about any project that requires high performance computing or intensive numerical simulations.
Computational Need #3: Stable Storage and Low-latency Data Transfer
The R272-Z32 is a 2U 26-Bay R-Series Rack Server that’s recommended for networking and storage. It is a versatile machine that is noted for its easy-to-use tool-less design and unparalleled stability.
Tech GuideWhat is a Server? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
In the modern age, we enjoy an incredible amount of computing power—not because of any device that we own, but because of the servers we are connected to. They handle all our myriad requests, whether it is to send an email, play a game, or find a restaurant. They are the inventions that make our intrinsically connected age of digital information possible. But what, exactly, is a server? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents our latest Tech Guide. We delve into what a server is, how it works, and what exciting new breakthroughs GIGABYTE has made in the field of server solutions.
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.
Created by Greener Grass Production, the Taiwanese sci-fi mini-series “2049” has debuted on Netflix and various local TV channels. The animated spin-off “2049+ Voice of Rebirth”, crafted by Xanthus Animation Studio, will soon premiere on the streaming service myVideo. The CGI show was created with the NCHC Render Farm’s GIGABYTE servers, which employ top-of-the-line NVIDIA® graphics cards to empower artists with industry-leading rendering capabilities. The servers can take on multiple workloads simultaneously through parallel computing, and they boast a wide range of patented smart features that ensure stability and availability. With all it has going for it, “2049+ Voice of Rebirth” may garner enough attention to become the breakout hit that will introduce Taiwanese animation to international audiences.
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.
