ELI Beamlines in Dolní Břežany is the most expensive research center in the Czech Republic. Almost exactly three years after the construction began, scientific research has begun. Establishment of ELI (ie Extreme Light Infrastructure) will cost approximately 6.8 billion CZK, the key component will be the most intense laser in the world.

The project is run by the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, its employees will investigate extreme phenomena using laser power of up to 10 petawatts (10 trillion watts) - for example they will simulate the events inside the stars, it will also help research of the outer planets.

But the use of research will also be practical. “From a practical point of view, this is the potential development of new live cell diagnostics. We will be able to look in detail at living cells, proteins, enzymes. We hope that this will lead to the development of new, compact methods of cancer treatment,” described Bedřich Rus, Chief Scientific Coordinator of ELI Beamlines.

ANAFRA has supplied a total of 25 special servers to this new scientific server, capable of serving up to 11 additional cards connected to PCI-E slots at a time. Servers are built on the 3U platform, 2x CPU, 128GB RAM, 1TB hard disk and 4x SFP + ports.

Total project value: more than 2.5mil CZK without VAT

Time to implement: 2.5 weeks
