Here is the story of how Australia's fastest supercomputer, Gadi, was built. Gadi performs over nine quadrillion (nine thousand trillion) operations per second. Read more about Gadi here, and read more about the Gadi artwork here.
To construct a supercomputer of this size requires input and expertise from the brightest minds – supercomputing experts, IT specialists, engineers, plumbers and electricians. Located at NCI Australia (National Computational Infrastructure) and hosted by The Australian National University, Gadi is used by thousands of Australian researchers across the entire scientific spectrum, from climate and weather modelling to cancer research, bushfire simulations, fluid dynamics and quantum computing research.
