Russia aims high in supercomputing
A Russian high-tech firm, T-Platforms, has set a new world record for data processing, and its Lomonosov supercomputer has reached a capacity of 1.3 petaflops - 13th place in the world's strongest supercomputers Top-500 list.
By exceeding the petaflop benchmark, the machine joined the world's high-performance computer systems (HPCs) elite club. But Russia faces a challenge in utilizing the speed of its machines with complex commercial R&D tasks.
Alexei Komkov, of T-Platforms, said universities were the company's main clients in Russia. "We have supplied universities in Perm, Kazan and Tyumen with HPCs to conduct studies in molecular physics, chemistry, microbiology, nanotechnology and climate change," Komkov said.
