Move to Centralized HPC Helps California Manage Drought Crisis

Move to Centralized HPC Helps California Manage Drought Crisis

California Department of Water Resources creates a centralized HPC platform that doubles high-end modeling performance, quadruples capacity, and reduces operations costs for modeling by 45 percent.

Like many resource-strapped agencies and businesses, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) handled its high-performance computing (HPC) modeling needs through a mix of high-end workstations, departmental servers, and outsourced services. But with modeling requirements rising and California’s water challenges becoming critical, the mixed environment was becoming unsustainable.

Collaborating closely with DWR’s end-user scientists, the department’s mission-focused IT organization decided on a new approach. “IT’s job is to enable the business,” says Tim Garza, DWR’s chief information officer. “Our previous approach was becoming a constraint instead of an enabler to the aspects of the business related to high-end computer modeling.”

DWR created a centralized, in-house resource optimized for HPC modeling. To power the environment, they chose HP ProLiant* SL and DL series servers, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, Red Hat Enterprise Linux*, and an InfiniBand* fabric interconnect.
