UK's fastest supercomputer upgrades to 2Pflops and 5PB of tiered storage


UK's fastest supercomputer upgrades to 4,920 compute nodes

The Archer supercomputer at the University of Edinburgh’s Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC) – the fastest in the UK – has boosted its Cray XC30 computing capacity from 3,008 dual Intel Ivy bridge CPU nodes to 4,920 and deployed a SpectraLogic T380 tape library for archive data. Archer – which stands for Advanced Research Computing High End Resource – delivers high performance computing (HPC) for hundreds of scientific simulations a day to UK academics with processing power that can reach 2 Petaflops, or 2 quadrillion (thousand trillion) floating point operations per second.
