A consortium of higher education establishments in Austria recognized a collective need for extremely powerful computational resources. In 2009, the group of universities decided to join forces to design and share access to a high performance computer.
Over the next few years, the supercomputer was regularly updated to adapt to increasingly sophisticate demand and technology evolution.
In 2014, the consortium identified the need to upgrade the supercomputer once again, to harness additional compute power, and to create an even more robust HPC environment. A key requirement for the next generation supercomputer was to focus on energy efficiency and to reduce environmental impact.
Our latest case study describes how Bright is integral to the supercomputer, known as VSC-3.
