Cumulus

Our latest system, an IBM Bluegene/Q. The is the first system of its kind in the South East Asia region. Rated at over 100 TFLOPS, this is also the most powerful known supercomputer in this region. With an extremely well balanced Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture, this system is ideal for large jobs requiring hundreds or thousands of processors, taking it well beyond the scalability limits of commodity High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. Cumulus has 512 compute nodes and 8192 cores with 1GB of memory per core.
