Apple has won a Best of Show award at Bio-IT World Conference & Expo for its recently announced Apple Workgroup Cluster for Bioinformatics. According to Apple, the turnkey, high-performance computing cluster allows any scientist to easily configure, operate and maintain the system. The workgroup cluster solution offers “outstanding price-performance with unrivaled ease of setup and includes iNquiry, a 3rd-party bioinformatics package from The BioTeam that provides 200 ready-to-use bioinformatics applications optimized for Apple’s industry-leading Xserve G5.” Installation and maintenance have also been simplified so little or no IT support is required, says Apple.
