Oceanbox.io unlocks secrets of sea with Lenovo’s HPC Solutions

Lenovo has been selected by ocean intelligence company Oceanbox.io to power its operations and improve humanity’s knowledge of the sea.

Oceanbox is using Lenovo’s ThinkSystem servers to simulate, store and analyse the mountain of data it holds and produces, supporting its mission to model the depths of the ocean and make its data and tools accessible to all.

Based in Norway, Oceanbox specialises in simulating oceanographic data to model the sea’s movements and properties, including temperature, salinity, currents, light propagation and sedimentation, down to metre-level resolution.

It also acquires data from thousands of data points, such as wind, river and sonographic data, to feed into equations and get the most realistic view possible of the world. Organisations can use Oceanbox’s dashboards to run simulations that predict and visualise how elements like viruses, lice and oil will be transported through the water.

Svenn Hanssen, CEO at Oceanbox. “What excites me most is making new discoveries about the ocean and figuring out what’s happening beneath the surface. In future, we want users to be able to simply open up their web browser to gain this information. This comes down to connecting data and computational resources, and Lenovo’s storage and management capabilities enable us to continually unlock new secrets from the sea.”
