A large memory, high performance computing system

Funding: 2006: $620,000

Project Member(s): Botten, L., Ford, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)
AC3

Start year: 2006

Summary: Computational simulation and modelling is a critical element in the advancement of knowledge in science and technology, with cutting-edge research requiring teraflop capacity infrastructure. Presently, ac3 s access to systems of appropriate capability is limited, hampering research progress in intensely competitive fields. The proposed large memory, teraflop system will boost local access to genuine supercomputing capability ten fold, complement the APAC National Facility, and support ARC projects in chemistry, photonics, materials science and nanotechnology, mathematics, physics, engineering and earth systems, many of which are directed towards national priorities in frontier technologies and Australian environmental sustainability.
