Supercomputer boost to Australian Research
The door to the petascale era is being opened for critical Australian research in climate change, the enviroment and a host of other areas. This transformational change comes with ANU signing an agreement with Fujitsu to build and install a 1.2 Petaflop supercomputer-the most powerful computer in Australia and amongst the largest in the world-and capable of performing 170,000 calculations per second for each of the seven billion people on the planet.
The new petascale supercomputer, to be installed at the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) at the ANU.
