Supercomputer is operated by JCAHPC, which is a jointly run by the University of Tokyo and the University of Tsukuba
Fujitsu announced the completion of the Oakforest-PACS supercomputer at the Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC), which is jointly run by the University of Tokyo and the University of Tsukuba, and that operations have commenced.
This new supercomputer is comprised of FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY CX600 M1 x86 servers. It uses Intel Xeon Phi processors in its 8,208 computation nodes, achieving a total theoretical computational performance of 25 petaflops.
Using performance tuning technologies from Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. aimed at large-scale, high performance computing to draw out the maximum system performance, the system achieved 13.55 petaflops on the LINPACK benchmark used to show supercomputer performance on the TOP500 rankings, placing it first in Japan and sixth in the world..
