Australia’s two largest high performance computing (HPC) centres have joined a US-led consortium to provide governments, industry and academics the computing resources they need to support COVID-19 research.

The National Computing Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey Supercomputing Centre were named by the White House Office of Science and Technology as partners in the initiative spearheaded by the office, IBM, and the US Department of Energy.

Over 40 members have already joined the consortium, bringing 6.8 million CPU cores, 50,000 GPUs, 165,000 nodes and 600 petaflops of compute power to 78 active projects.
