Pawsey Centre receives $70 Million for Supercomputing Down Under April 28


Today the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre announced it has received $70 million in funding for a new supercomputing infrastructure. The new machines will replace Magnus, a Cray XC40 considered to be one of the most advanced supercomputers in the southern hemisphere, and Galaxy, a real-time system dedicated to Square Kilometre Array.

Today’s announcement, together with last year’s investment into the National Computational Infrastructure located in Canberra, will strengthen Australia’s position in the global research environment and enable Australia to stay globally competitive,” said John Langoulant, Chair of the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. “This is a reflection of the government’s understanding of the value that the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre delivers to the Australian scientific landscape by accelerating innovation and increasing opportunities for engagement between Australian researchers and their peers internationally.
