News from Down Under today that iVEC, and organization in Western Australia designed to encourage “uptake of high performance computing and visualisation in Western Australia,” is growing its HPC capability with a 107 TFLOPS HP ProLiant blade system tucked into a trailer from HP.

The new HP POD (Performance Optimized Datacenter) was purchased as part of Australia’s 1.1B (AUD) Super Science Initiative, and will be on line as part of the first phase of the Pawsey Centre project by November of this  year.
