The HPC System Portfolio includes machines which easy to configure and design, domain specific designs tuned by Dell engineers and aimed at scientific, engineering and analytics, and full validated systems.

Application specific systems include an HPC system for genomic data analysis, using its relationship with the Translational Genomics Research Institute.

HPC for manufacturing is for enterprises running complicated manufacturing design simulations using workstations, clusters or both.

And HPC system for research is, as its name implies, for complex scientific analysis.
