Pawsey gets funding commitment from WA gov

The Western Australian government will spend $22.4 million over five years supporting the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, in return for access to its facilities.

Those facilities include the country’s and southern hemisphere’s fastest HPC machine, Setonix, also recognised as one of the least-polluting supercomputers in the Green500 list.

The 500-node, 65,000 core Setonix went live in July.

The centre’s executive director Mark Stickells said the funding commitment would support the delivery of HPC expertise to “a wide range of agencies, organisations, researchers and communities”.
