Cardiff gives researchers supercomputer help

Cardiff University has installed a supercomputer that will support its academic departments' research projects.

Academics at Cardiff will now be able to use a high-performance computing service, instead of the current smaller departmental facilities.

The supercomputer will provide benefits in the fields of astrophysics, fluid dynamics, geological simulation, materials science and molecular simulation.

Professor Martyn Guest, director of the university's Advanced Research Computing (ARCCA) division said, "The new supercomputer will enable us to compete on research terms with the best universities in the world. Our goal is to establish Advanced Research Computing as an invaluable tool for research across all schools."

The technology will be supplied by Bull. The service should be available by the end of April.
