Feds to pump $70M into Perth’s supercomputers


Pawsey’s Magnus and Galaxy machines reaching end of life.

The federal government will shell out $70 million to replace tech infrastructure at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth.

The money is being used to roll out a replacement for Pawsey’s supercomputers Magnus and Galaxy as both systems at close to the end of their operational lives, Pawsey said over the weekend. These computers are used to accelerate discoveries in medical science, engineering, geoscience, marine science, chemistry, food and agriculture.
