The new supercomputer called HPE Cray EX in Cheyenne, Wyoming should be ranked among the fastest Supercomputers In the world.
The supercomputer helps study phenomena, including climate change, severe weather, wildfires and solar storms that can threaten the global positioning system.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise won the bid to present the device Which is worth between $ 35 and $ 40 million for the Cheyenne Supercomputing Center, he says Advertise National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
Funding for the system comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Wyoming Supercomputing Center of the National Atmospheric Research Center (NWSC) is funded by the National Science Foundation and the state of Wyoming through an accreditation by the University of Wyoming.
According to the information, the supercomputer HPE Cray EX will be a 19.87 Petaflop system, which means that it is capable Theoretically makes about 20 quadrillion calculations per second.
This means that the new supercomputer is 3.5 times faster than the current device at Cheyenne’s Wyoming Supercomputing Center.
And the top speed of the new machine per second will be roughly equivalent to every man, woman and child on the planet solving one equation every second for a month.
This computational power can perform some of the most complex simulations yet of large-scale natural events affected by humans.
According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the supercomputer is supposed to be ranked among the 25 fastest supercomputers in the world after it is installed this year, and will be operational in early 2022.
And he said Center director, (Everette Joseph), at statement Journalist: Computers support basic research in ways that lead to more detailed and useful predictions for the world around us, helping to make our society more resilient in the face of costly disasters and contributing to improved human health and well-being.
More than 4,000 people from hundreds of universities and other institutions around the world have used the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s Wyoming Supercomputing Center since it opened in 2012.
The facility’s current supercomputer, called Cheyenne, is three times faster than its predecessor, called Yellowstone.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is holding a statewide competition for school children in Wyoming to suggest a name for the new system.
