Finnish IT Science Center Invests in HPC

Abstract:
CSC Finland, the Finnish IT center for science, will acquire a Cray massively parallel processing (MPP) system delivering over 70 teraflops of compute power to CSC's high performance computing users.

"One of the most rapidly growing areas of research and product development today is nanoscience and -technology, which utilizes atom-level scientific understanding to build up new kinds of functional materials and devices. Nanoscience thus relies on understanding complicated atomic interactions, and the best way to obtain that is using massive supercomputing capability." says professor Kai Nordlund from the University of Helsinki. He continues: "The new capacity will enable, for instance, studying dynamic processes in entire nanoobjects on the quantum level, something which very few research groups yet can do anywhere in the world."
