How UCLA Accelerates Research with a Scalable High-Performance Computing Infrastructure


“Supporting our research community effectively is essential to our ability to attract and retain the best faculty… We needed a true partner to help us succeed and believe we have that with NetApp.”

– Scott Friedman, PhD, Chief Technologist for Research Computing, UCLA IDRE


The University of California, Los Angeles is a large, top-ranked public research university, and its administrators knew it needed a scalable high-performance computing (HPC) solution that could keep up with the institution’s complex needs, including fast-processing speeds, high-volume data storage, and centralized control for multiple users.

In this case study, you’ll learn why UCLA technologists chose NetApp as their technology partner, and how NetApp continues to help them grow as they push the boundaries of higher education research.
