Turnkey Cluster Hardware

Featuring the latest and most powerful server architecture available on the market


Latest Gen NVIDIA GPUs

Our Turnkey Cluster solutions offer up to 8x NVIDIA A100 GPUs, delivering unprecedented compute performance to aid the discovery of new drugs, uncover genetic mutations to better fight disease, and drive healthcare innovation.


Weka NVMe file Storage

The NVMe storage block comes pre-integrated with WekaFS, a modern file system that accelerates the data pipeline, whether it is next-generation sequencing, Microscopy or bio-imaging, lowers the cost of research, and keeps data secure.


Latest Gen CPU options

We offer the latest generation CPU options from industry veterans AMD and Intel,built to handle large scientific and engineering datasets with top performance – ideal for HPC workloads, compute-intensive models and analysis techniques.


NVIDIA Mellanox Interconnect

High Performance clusters require flexible, high-speed connections. NVIDIA Mellanox interconnect  accelerates and offloads data transfers to ensure compute resources never “go hungry” and simplify infrastructure automation so applications run faster.

Turning hardware into a Life Science Cluster

LMX Cloud Software

When developing a turnkey cluster solution, we adopt a layered approach, starting with the end user requirements at the application level and working down the stack to the hardware that will ultimately deliver the resources. The goal of our software is to plug the gap between end user-expectancy, and what’s ultimately deliverable by the hardware.

How it works

Users can login via our easy-to use, API-driven interface and simply request the hardware resources that he or she requires to run their desired application. LMX Cloud handles the provisioning, OS deployment, application configuration, scheduling, telemetry and monitoring and presents the user with an environment that they know and are familiar with.

Application Repository

Our built-in software application repository is a portfolio of thousands of containerised life-science frame-works, applications and pipeline analytics tools that come pre-integrated and ready to run. Deploy and start using life science applications and AI frame-works including Caffe, Theano and Tensorflow in a matter of minutes.


Our platform includes hpc-optimised capabilities such as secure dedicated clusters that can support collaborative research, virtualised GPU’s for accelerating analytical workloads (eg. Genomics pipelines) , cloud-native workstations for high-resolution image analysis as well as the integration of AI technologies such as Kubernetes, and Spark/Hail for GATK analysis.

Life Science Use Cases

Genomic Sequencing

Genome or Genomic sequencing is the study of our DNA with the goal of identifying mutations that can cause disease.

Cryo-Electron Microscopy

Cryo-EM is the process of freezing biomolecules in mid-movement and producing 3D models of them and simulate their behaviour.

Molecular dynamics

Is the study of physical systems at a molecular level to calculate motion and equilibrium of each individual atom or molecule through simulation.

Drug Discovery

Drug discovery allows the discovery of molecules with pharmacological activity, and the study of the most appropriate compounds for a particular disease.

Medical Imaging

Combining HPC resources with deep learning algorithms can improve the recognition of complicated patterns in Medical images such as MRI, CAT scans.

Disease Behaviour & Prevention

The study of the breakdown and behaviour of viruses through intense data analytics and simulated environments.
