260 Tflop Abel Supercomputer Coming to University of Oslo

Today the University of Oslo announced that it will install a 260 Teraflop supercomputer named after famed Mathematician Niel Henrick Abel. The system will be provided by Megware and will be used for a wide range of research with demanding data handling applications.

The Abel system will strengthen the University of Oslo’s position as a leading European research university”, says UiO IT-director Lars Oftedal. “Abel is designed for running a large number of concurrent tasks with large datasets and/or memory requirements. Such applications are found in an increasing number of research disciplines, but in particular in life sciences (bioinformatics), climate research and high-energy physics.”

The Abel system is to be installed in June 2012. Read the Full Story.
