Joint Center For Advanced High Performance Computing Acquires Fujitsu System For Oakforest-PACs* Centralized Supercomputer

Japan’s University of Tokyo and University of Tsukuba collaboratively created the Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC) to centralize their supercomputing resources, giving them increased computational capabilities for advanced research across a wide range of disciplines. The more than 8000-node machine, built on Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors and Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel® OPA) is the fastest supercomputer in Japan and 7th in the world, according to the June 2017 Top500.
