http://www.megware.com/images/header/logo.gif (http://www.megware.com/)Today the University of Oslo announced that it will install a 260 Teraflop supercomputer named after famed Mathematician Niel Henrick Abel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niels_Henrik_Abel). The system will be provided by Megware and will be used for a wide range of research with demanding data handling applications.

The Abel system will strengthen the University of Oslo‚??s position as a leading European research university‚??, says UiO IT-director Lars Oftedal. ‚??Abel is designed for running a large number of concurrent tasks with large datasets and/or memory requirements. Such applications are found in an increasing number of research disciplines, but in particular in life sciences (bioinformatics), climate research and high-energy physics.‚??

The Abel system is to be installed in June 2012. Read the Full Story (http://www.megware.com/en/default.aspx).
