IBM to Supply Bulgaria with BlueGene

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday, the Bulgarian State Agency for Information Technology and Communications [SAITC] has announced that IBM will deliver the first machine to its new supercomputing center.  SAITC will take ownership of an IBM BlueGene/P slated for DNA diagnostics, accelerated drug discovery and financial modeling.

The first machine will ship with 8,192 procs rated at an estimated 23.42 TFlops.  This would put Bulgaria around #75 on the current Top500 list.  IBM has also pledged collaboration from their research lab in Zurich.
