HA-PACS (Highly Accelerated Parallel Advanced system for Computational Sciences) is the latest generation of PACS/PAX series supercomputer in CCS, University of Tsukuba. HA-PACS is the demonstration system for parallel computing with Tightly Coupled Accelerators.
Toward realize performance of Exa-Flops,
– establish elements of the both hardware and software
– make innovation in the important applications of computational sciences
for research and development of an efficient parallel system to coupling a number of accelerators.
HA-PACS Project is funded by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
The system will start operation on February 2012.
