The NUI Galway supercomputer is one in every of 5 new machines deployed within the EU, with the primary European exascale mannequin hosted in Germany.

The Irish Heart for Excessive-Finish Computing (ICHEC) has been chosen by the EU to host and function a next-generation supercomputer that might be 25 instances extra highly effective than the present nationwide supercomputer.

A supercomputer referred to as CASPIr, based mostly on the NUI Galway, might be one in every of 5 new next-generation fashions deployed in EU international locations.

The opposite 4 supercomputers are deployed in Greece, Hungary, Poland and Germany. These supercomputers will serve a variety of European customers within the scientific, industrial and public sectors.

Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh, President of NUI Galway stated, “The primary benefit of this excellent supercomputing expertise is its capability to mannequin complexity and radically develop analysis alternatives.”

Ó hÓgartaigh provides that the brand new supercomputer might be a “important asset” supporting future-proofing analysis approaches and the Irish scientific neighborhood.

“It additionally aligns with many facets of our analysis technique to make use of information to help coverage making that helps the atmosphere, oceans, healthcare and good societies.”

This machine is co-funded by the European Excessive Efficiency Computing Joint Endeavor with the funds of the Digital Europe Programme, Horizon Europe, and donations from collaborating international locations.

Professor JC Desplat of ICHEC stated he expects the brand new supercomputer to be 25 instances extra highly effective than the present nationwide mannequin, Kay. He added that the machine will assist create a platform for the subsequent technology of “data-driven applied sciences and platforms”.

Final month, Desplat advised that high-performance computing has change into “a basic a part of analysis,” particularly in local weather informatics, digital twins of Earth methods, medication and medication, and supplies science.

Eire’s new system might be one in every of 4 European medium-sized supercomputers with petascale or pre-exascale capabilities.

Europe’s first exascale supercomputer might be hosted in Germany. This supercomputer is anticipated to have the ability to carry out greater than 5000 trillion calculations per second.

On the finish of Could, within the biennial High 500 Supercomputer rankings, US machine Frontier was named the quickest supercomputer in historical past and the primary formally acknowledged exascale supercomputer.
