Nanowerk News has a story today on a new partnership in southeast Asia to develop petascale applications aimed at industry

Fujitsu and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR)’s Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) announced today an R&D partnership to jointly develop advanced applications technologies for the next generation of scientific computing known as petascale computing.

The joint IHPC/Fujitsu team will include 20 researchers focused on new algorithms for extreme scale applications in computational fluid dynamics and materials science.

To do so, the team will harness the compute power of Fujitsu supercomputer system comprising a cluster of Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 blade servers with a peak performance of over 35 teraflops[1] and 91.8% efficiency[2] with LINPACK program[3]. This is the first installation of a Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900-based supercomputer outside of Japan. This system, housed at A*STAR’s Computational Resource Centre (A*CRC) at Fusionopolis, will be amongst the top tier of supercomputer sites in the world and the most powerful in Southeast Asia.
