Work has completed to consolidate our current compute and cluster servers at the WBIC. By utilising the latest server technology we have reduced our current compute/cluster server count from 76 Servers to just 8, but this will constitute an increase of approx 50% more CPU/Memory processing power available, as well as reducing our energy footprint by 80%.
