Dell Behind America's Cup Team Emirates Team New Zealand
Round Rock-based Dell said Thursday that the team challenging Oracle Team USA in the America's Cup--Emirates Team New Zealand--did all of its boat design using its computers. According to Dell, Emirates Team New Zealand used high performance computing (HPC) technology from Dell to design the yacht it is sailing against Oracle Team USA. Dell said the team used Dell Precision workstations, Latitude laptops and Dell PowerEdge servers connected to Dell EqualLogic, plus switches and other equipment, for their HPC cluster.
