Altair chosen for Japanese research centre

Altair's workload management product, PBS Professional, has been selected to manage workload for the Cray XC30 supercomputer recently put into production by the Japan Advanced Institute for Science and Technology (JAIST).

One of Japan's premier academic research centres, JAIST is using the new Cray XC30 supercomputer for research into massively parallel programming and a variety of scientific pursuits.

The two-cabinet Cray XC30 supercomputer at JAIST has a peak performance of more than 118 teraflops with 5760 CPU cores and is the institute's main system for its high-performance computing facility.

'At JAIST, it is imperative to provide our world-class scientists with the best available technology resources to support their computational research,' said Mineo Kaneko, director of the JAIST Research Center for Advanced Computing Infrastructure.

'The pioneering Cray XC30 supercomputer with PBS Professional will allow our users to expand the scope of their research efforts with a proven, well-integrated solution they can rely on.'
