Over at the Cray Blog, Jay Gould writes that Indiana University’s new Big Red II supercomputer is 25 times faster than its predecessor.

Utilizing the world’s fastest university-owned supercomputer, IU will now be able address new science and technology challenges, addressing much larger and vastly more complex problems. Building on the success of the original Cray Big Red 1 system, the Big Red II supercomputer was dedicated and opened for discovery in April of this year. The University is using Big Red II to arm its smartest computational science minds with the tools they need to lead us into the next wave of technical exploration — an investment that they estimate will pay for itself many times over in terms of economic development in Indiana — accelerating their own access to a broader realm of technical domains.
