Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers Power 1.3 Petaflop Supercomputer at University of Southampton

OCF in the UK has deployed a new supercomputer at the University of Southampton. Named Iridis 5, the 1.3 Petaflop system will support research demanding traditional HPC as well as projects requiring large scale deep storage, big data analytics, web platforms for bioinformatics, and AI services. “We’ve had early access to Iridis 5 and it’s substantially bigger and faster than its previous iteration – it’s well ahead of any other in use at any University across the UK for the types of calculations we’re doing.”
