Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With help from federal stimulus funds from the National Science Foundation, Colorado State University is getting ready to dedicate a new Cray supercomputer that will be available to all university researchers.

As the anchor system for the Information Science and Technology Center (ISTeC), Colorado’s new Cray XT6m model features 1,248 cores, 1.6 terabytes of main memory, and 32 terabytes of disk storage. The Cray system will support much larger and more complex problems in science and engineering, especially for data intensive applications; add greater physical fidelity to existing models; facilitate application of computing to new areas of research and discovery; and support training to attract new researchers to computational science, engineering and mathematics.  Full Story
