NCAR announced yesterday that IBM will install critical components of a petascale supercomputing system at the new NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC). The company was selected following a competitive open procurement process. The IBM components consist of a massive central resource for file and data storage, a high performance computational cluster, and a resource for visualizing the data. The new system, named Yellowstone, is expected to be delivered to the NWSC early next year.
Details can be found in the news release issued by the NCAR/UCAR Media Office.
