The Pawsey Centre installs Cascade supercomputer
Located in Kensington, Western Australia, the Pawsey Centre will install a Cray Cascade supercomputer and Sonexion storage system to support the data-intensive science that will be carried out using the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) and Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescopes.
Cray made the announcement following the signing of a contract with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). The company’s systems will also be used by researchers and scientists at the Pawsey Centre to support additional research areas including geosciences, nanotechnology and biosciences. Initial deliveries will begin in 2013 and are expected to be completed in 2014.
