Yale has pulled ahead of its Ivy League competitors with a new supercomputer acquisition from HP.
“Yale Information Technology Services announced Monday that it has purchased a new supercomputer — a machine that processes large amounts of scientific data at high speeds — ranked 146th in the world for speed, and 74th among academic institutions worldwide, according to the Top500 list, which compares high performance computers. The purchase of the computer cluster, named “Bulldog O,” or “Omega,” brings the University into the computing race for the first time, vaulting it ahead of the other Ivies and giving Yale professors the potential to publish their research faster than colleagues at other schools. Yale has never before owned a computer ranked among the top 500 in the world.”
