NOAA to triple weather and climate supercomputing capacity

The United States is reclaiming a global top spot in high performance computing to support weather and climate forecasts. NOAA, part of the Department of Commerce, today announced a significant upgrade to compute capacity, storage space, and interconnect speed of its Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputing System. This upgrade keeps the agency’s supercomputing capacity on par with other leading weather forecast centers around the world.

NOAA Looks to Dell for Massive Supercomputing Upgrade

Today NOAA announced to plans for a major upgrade to its supercomputing capabilities. The upgrade adds 2.8 petaflops of computational power, enabling NOAA’s National Weather Service to implement the next generation Global Forecast System, known as the “American Model,” next year. “Having more computing speed and capacity positions us to collect and process even more data from our newest satellites — GOES-East, NOAA-20 and GOES-S — to meet the growing information and decision-support needs of our emergency management partners, the weather industry and the public.”
