Welcome to Dataville, a city that wants the best for its residents. Whether it’s a cyberattack or a heart attack, Microsoft Azure’s high-performance computing solutions and Intel’s processing speed enable Dataville’s citizens to avert threats, protect themselves, and innovate for a better to create city.
Many of the city’s residents trust Dataville Bank with their savings. When the bank’s security is under attack and time is raced to beat a tough new deadline, the bankers emerge as heroes. The bank has the technology to react to market events in real time – and analyze multiple complex risk models simultaneously – so it can counter any threat.
The accelerated pace of business, regulatory changes and sophisticated scammers make risk management even more complicated. But the cloud is helping finance professionals analyze large amounts of data in a short amount of time, which is having game-changing implications for the industry. Financial institutions can now create more accurate risk models, scale processes to perform advanced analytics, and build modular technology systems.
The reporting and risk management power of this cloud can benefit the entire city as it makes decisions that impact the lives of its residents.
When Dataville realizes that a ruthless factory is polluting the city, it can act quickly. Advanced data processing and modeling give city guides the information they need to make sustainable changes to reduce the factors of climate change.
Cities around the world, including Dataville, are making changes to reduce the impact of climate change. Globally, governments and utilities are expected to spend up to $60 billion on energy efficiency technologies and investments by 2028.1 When governments and businesses have powerful data processing and modeling capabilities at their disposal, they can make more impactful and sustainable changes that benefit the planet and the health of their citizens.
When the citizens of Dataville face a health crisis, healthcare providers can save the day. But new developments in healthcare mean patients can achieve even better outcomes. The cloud has enhanced the ability to scale the computing power required to process all the data behind a genome and perform molecular dynamics, clinical trial simulation, and medical imaging. Patients can now avoid surgery and researchers can find new treatments.
By 2025, it is expected that 400 exabytes will be needed to store genomic data and 100 million genomes will be sequenced.2 With advances in genomics and drug development, researchers can scale processes globally, reduce costs and accelerate implementation. The cloud means researchers can focus on science rather than computing power and make progress faster.
Challenges are no problem for the citizens of Dataville.
Everyday professionals and city dwellers can become superheroes with Microsoft Azure HC series virtual machines powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, powered by Microsoft Azure networking, storage and software orchestration tools.
HC Series virtual machines are optimized for dense compute-driven applications and support Intel’s extensive ecosystem of software tools. The InfiniBand network enables greater agility for scientific and research applications, and Azure Batch and Azure CycleCloud – software orchestration tools – simplify the execution of HPC clusters and jobs.
Thanks to this technology, not only are the city’s industries and citizens safe today, but Dataville is innovating for a better tomorrow.
