LLNL’s supercomputer Vulcan available for collaborative work
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 5:04pm
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Vulcan supercomputer is now available for collaborative work with industry and research universities. Operating at 5 petaflops (quadrillion floating point operations per second), Vulcan raises the amount of computing at LLNL available for external collaborations by an order of magnitude.
Named the world’s sixth fastest high performance computing system by the Top500 list in November 2012, Vulcan will allow large systems to be simulated over longer time periods with greater fidelity and resolution. It addition, it will contribute to work being done by scientists, engineers and computer scientists to solve high-impact problems across a broad range of scientific, technological and business fields.
