Introduction

A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of computing performance, able to perform billions of calculations per second. Supercomputers allow scientific researchers and engineers to solve large, advanced, complex computational problems which are too big for a single machine to compute. With a supercomputer like ABACUS 2.0, your company can out-compute to out-compete.


HPC can be used for

Simulation & Optimization Big Data Workloads Predictive Behavior
Simulating real-world phenomena to gain deeper understanding or minimize risk, e.g. financial and molecular simulation. Manipulating vast datasets that are too large to be processed using commercial software and hardware in short time frames. Processing data to create forecast models or predict outcomes, e.g. weather forecasting.
