The nation’s most powerful computer was officially launched today at the opening of the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) high performance computing centre at The Australian National University (ANU). Named after the Japanese god of thunder, lightning and storms, Raijin can perform the same number of calculations in one hour that would take seven billion people armed with calculators 20 years. The supercomputer is the largest in Australia, and will enable researchers to process vast volumes of data that would otherwise take years to ... Read More
Dr Joseph Antony, NCI Cloud Services Manager The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) has signed a $2 million contract with Dell to supply a 3,200 core high-performance compute cloud. The agreement will see the establishment of a node of the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) Research Cloud within Australia’s richest computational and data-intensive research environment. NCI Director Professor Lindsay Botten said the node builds on NCI’s existing portfolio of cloud services and digital laboratories, creating an integrated platform that will be an ... Read More
