South African HPC centre to use T-Platforms' systems

Share this on social media:

T-Platforms, a Russian supercomputer developer and manufacturer, and South Africa's largest supercomputer centre, The Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC), have signed a letter of intent presupposing further multilateral cooperation. The CHPC expressed interest in T-Platforms latest developments and readiness to use T-Blade 2 - a petascale HPC platform - in its future projects. This blade-system provides high computing density and performance along with low power consumption. 

T-Platforms will grant CHPC access to its in-house developed petascale supercomputer equipment with the aim to assess scalability of CHPC software on this equipment.

CHPC is the second foreign organisation that has shown interest in further cooperation with T-Platforms and the company has also signed a similar paper with the Finnish supercomputer center CSC - IT Center for Science.
