York University uses Apple 64-processor cluster at its neuroimaging centre

Antony Savvas


York University is using a £175,000 Apple high-performance computing cluster to help analyse and store data at its new £5.2m neuroimaging centre.

The centre, at York Science Park, aims to put the university at the forefront of pioneering studies into the human brain.

It is designed to help scientists understand how vision, memory, language, and motor controls work together. Future plans include expanding the research into epilepsy, autism, strokes and dementia.

The 64-processor cluster is designed to analyse data from a high-end MEG scanner, and includes Xserve 1U servers, 55 Xserve cluster nodes and three Xserve RAID 3U storage platforms.

The university is already considering doubling the number of cluster nodes and expanding the storage capacity of the system.
