Our high performance IT infrastructure enables researchers to analyse data more quickly, efficiently, and on a larger scale than was previously possible.

Our current Athena Apollo system along with its data storage systems, GPFS and Panasas will be replaced with our new High Performance Compute Cluster (HPC) and a cloud server Rosalind on the 1 February 2017. This powerful combination provides the raw compute power of traditional HPC computing and the flexibility and diversity of a virtual machine cloud infrastructure.

Rosalind is named after Rosalind Franklin, a scientist who while working at King’s College London, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA.

The Rosalind facility is administered by our BRC at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and delivered in partnership with SLAM BRC NIHR Biomedical Research Center at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and NMS King’s College London Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences.

This approach offers different areas of experience and expertise through our partnering organisations and opens up possibilities for further collaborations.
