HPE to Build Supercomputer for MWA Telescope in Australia

HPE has been selected by the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth to deliver a new $2 million compute cluster that will support one of the Square Kilometre Array precursor projects in Australia, the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescope. “The new 78-node cluster will provide a dedicated system for astronomers to process in excess of 30 PB – equal to 399 years of high definition video – of MWA telescope data using Pawsey infrastructure. The new cluster will provide users with enhanced GPU capabilities to power AI, computational work, machine learning workflows and data analytics.”
