Latest Russian Top50 out

The March 30 edition of the Russian Top50 is out (the site is in Russian, but here’s the link). As usual we get our English language info about the list from T-Platforms. Their latest announcement includes the news that they are now at the top of that list

The 12th edition of Russia’s Top50 list of the most powerful HPC systems was released at the annual “Parallel computing technologies” international conference last week. The new list is topped by “Lomonosov” supercomputer with peak performance of 414 teraflops. The system deployed at Moscow State University (MSU) occupies the 12th position on the current TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.

…The new rating is topped by “Lomonosov” supercomputer manufactured by T-Platforms, the leading Russian HPC vendor. The system with peak performance of 414 teraflops and Linpack-measured performance of 350 teraflops occupies the 12th position of the current TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful computers.

…Lomonosov has knocked the previous Top50 leader, MVS-1000K supercomputer installed at the RAS Joint Supercomputer Center with 107 teraflops of Lipack performance, off the top perch to the 2nd position. The 3rd position of the new list is occupied by SKIF Chebyshev 60 teraflops system developed by T-Platforms and deployed at MSU in the framework of the SKIF GRID supercomputer program of Russia and Belarus.

Also of note, the #50 on the list is now over 1 TFLOPS; T-Platforms dominates the list with 15 systems, followed by HP with 13 and IBM with 11. There has also been a lot of growth in the list, no doubt helped at least in part by the high-level commitment the Russian government is placing on growing the country’s HPC capabilities as part of improving its international competitiveness

For the first time history the bottom performance level of the list exceeded 1 teraflops to reach 1.47 teraflops. The number of systems used in science and education decreased slightly 31 to 28, while one new system involved in applied research has joined the list. The number of systems employed for financial analysis grew from 3 to 5, while the industrial manufacturing segment lost one system (down from 6 to 5) and the number of systems involved in applied research has grown (from 9 to 10).
