Kromek is a UK radiation detection solutions Group that provides digital colour x-ray and gamma ray detection and imaging. Our products enable direct materials identification in the security screening, civil nuclear and medical imaging markets.
Kromek use simulations of particle physics as a part of their research and development process. They had implemented a server farm to help process this data however simulations were still taking weeks at a time to run. They contacted eastQuay to help speed up this process. We helped to develop a cloud-based solution, leveraging Amazon’s AWS EC2 platform to process the data. This allowed them to run up to 2000 servers at a time to process the data and cut down the simulation run times to less than a day.
