Extreme Delivers High-Performance Processing Power for UK Synchrotron’s Scientific Experiments

Diamond Light Source is one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world, serving as the UK’s synchrotron, and its pioneering capabilities are helping to keep the UK at the forefront of scientific research. The synchrotron works like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines.

Operating 25 individual experimental stations connected to the synchrotron, Diamond Light Source continues to generate increasing terabytes of data from the scientific experiments undertaken by over 3,000 researchers. To support its growing data storage needs, while catering for its special requirements, the company sought a high performance, low cost network solution that would deliver additional processing power and scalability for future developments.

With the Extreme Networks solution, Diamond Light Source has achieved the following results:

  • Enhanced operational efficiency through quick, on-site data processing
  • Cost Savings
  • High-performance, reliable infrastructure
  • Scalable, resilient network
  • Compact footprint
