Mercator Ocean wanted an R&D computing system that would let it conduct high-resolution simulations while reducing costs and enhancing performance. It deployed Dell PowerEdge* servers with Intel® Xeon® processors to deliver the highest performance for code simulating the complexities of the physical state of the world’s oceans.
