Breakthrough Research Accelerated

In Academic Research, breakthrough results can revolutionize a field, build careers and accelerate institutional funding. In genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, fluid dynamics, marine science, particle physics and other data-intensive fields, faster access to ever larger data sets is crucial to meaningful research.  Generating, accessing, curating and publishing data sets and results in the face of massive data growth requires increasingly sophisticated IT infrastructure.

For over 15 years, DDN has been the HPC Storage Leader delivering complete campus-wide, departmental and cloud storage solutions to hundreds of Universities around the world.

  • DDN Powers over 2/3 of the world’s fastest supercomputing environments
  • Only DDN provides complete, end to end solutions across performance, archive and cloud
  • Universities around the world partner with DDN to build HPC infrastructure, storage condos and research clouds

See how Tokyo Technical Institute, SSERCA and University College London are building secure, academic research clouds for increased collaboration.
