Scientific demand for HPC estimation

A key matter for the improvement of the Chilean competitivity 

These are some interesting figures in respect to the expected use of our infrastructure.

Expected usage of the NLHPC infrastructure

  • Close to 50 Chilean research groups (around 300 researchers) currently require HPC resources.
  • The expansion of the Chilean research in sciences based on data such as Omics, Bioinformatics and Astronomy, require a national installation for HPC services.
  • The scientific contributions in areas such as Nuclear Simulations, Quantum Mechanics and Astrophysics are highly dependable of the availability of HPC capacities.
  • Astronomy will become a very needful for HPC research field: LSST and AURA will produce more than 40 TB rough data per night.
