"We have worked with Fujitsu for many years now and are very comfortable with the team and its dependable service. We were moving into an unfamiliar space, but despite the complexities we came out ahead of schedule and budget."
Christopher Muir IT Officer The University of the West Indies
The University of the West Indies (UWI) has grown from humble beginnings in 1948 and today offers world class, accredited higher education programs to Jamaica, the region and the world. The Mona campus, located in northern Kingston, encompasses 653 acres of land that was formerly part of two large sugar estates, Papine and Mona.
The University of the West Indies, based in Jamaica, has for years outsourced its HPC projects to sister institutions, however, it wanted to bring this capability back in-house to boost its climate studies research. The university needed a project management partner to handle the complex installation.
Over the course of just three weeks, Fujitsu project managed the delivery and installation of 34 nodes and one head node interconnected by 400TB of InfiniBand® storage, running on 34 blade servers.
