Watch the construction of Australia’s largest supercomputer
Watch the timelapse video of the Fujitsu Primergy cluster high-performance supercomputer constructed at the National Computational Infrastructure.
The machine has:
57,000 cores = 15,000 home PC’s
160 terabytes of RAM = 40,000 home PC’s
10 petabytes of hard disc = 10,000 PC hard drives
1,200 teraflops of peak computational performance = 5 months worth of calculations by 1 billion people armed with calculators, in just 1 second.
9 terabyes of network = 9 million home internet bandwidth connections
