Diamond Light Source Accelerates Analysis of Data Produced by Intense Light Beams with Univa Grid Engine

The United Kingdom‘s national synchrotron science facility benefits from Univa‘s comprehensive onsite training and support programs.

Executive Summary


Diamond Light Source has established itself as one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world. Its pioneering capabilities include a synchrotron that harnesses the power of electrons to produce bright light.

Diamond Light Source faced the challenge of efficiently and effectively training a group of staff members after upgrading to Univa Grid Engine software to ensure that operational needs and timelines were achieved seamlessly.

The solution was Univa's in-house customized training program and ongoing support contract.

Univa provided a week-long training course on-site at Diamond Light Source to several personnel. The opportunity allowed the Univa trainer to adapt the curriculum to Diamond's specific needs.

Diamond Light Source continues to take advantage of Univa's expertise and support offering.

"...not all developers are teachers and ours was very good at translating his knowledge to the unique requirements of our facility."

"We are truly pleased with our investment in Univa and just love their proactive support."
