Super computer Nebulae to run soon
China’s first super computer Nebulae with measured performance exceeding one petaflops per second will start for operation in an all round way in the National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen next month, according to dawning industrial base in Tianjin.
The Dawning Nebulae, which was developed and produced at the Dawning Tianjin Industrial Base, was officially released in June last year, with the measured Linpack performance of 1.27 petaflops per second. The Dawning Nebulae ranks the No. 2 on the 35th edition of the closely watched top 500 list of supercomputers in the world, which was published May 31, 2010.
As required, the Nebulae after settling down at National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen, as divided into two parts: one for high speed calculations and the other for cloud calculations, according to Nie Hua, vice president of Dawning Information Industry Corporation.
Power supply for the Nebulae now has been completed in Shenzhen and relevant debugging work is under process. There are a large number of clients waiting for to use the supercomputer. As an super computing system designed for facing the future cloud calculation environment, the Nebulae will become a main computer in the new generation supercomputing center.
National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen is the first one that was constructed in Shenzhen and will be the only major scientific project in Shenzhen with largest investment amount for single project. The total cost of the project is 1.23 billion Yuan.
