"AstraZeneca will use Platform LSF on three heterogeneous compute farms, two in England and one in Sweden. These sites include:

Alderley Park, Cheshire, UK: AstraZeneca's Enabling Science and Technology department has invested in 130 Platform LSF licenses to manage its compute farm, consisting of 110 IBM Linux servers and 8 SGI IRIX servers. The computing power created by this farm is used for chemo-informatics, molecular modeling and accelerating high throughput structure-based drug discovery and design.

Blackley, UK: The Discovery Information Systems department near Manchester runs a compute farm consisting of 204 Compaq ES40 servers, with more than 200 Platform LSF licenses. AstraZeneca sites all over the world use the compute power provided for bio-informatics."
