ATM S.A. strengthens its leading position on the market of supercomputers and computing clusters
More than 1,200 processors installed and running in supercomputer installations.
In December 2006, ATM finished the next stage of deliveries for the largest Polish computing centers. The computing power has been increased by doubling the number of processors and expanding the memory. In result, the supercomputers delivered during the last several months have in total 544 newest-generation processors and more than 1 TB of memory, all in a consistent technology and architecture.
The Cyfronet AGH Academic Computer Center deployed the first in Poland, newest supercomputer SGI Altix 4700, equipped with a computing subsystem based on the RASC (Reconfigurable Application Specific Computing) technology.
