February 21, 2011 in the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Russian Federal Nuclear Center — All-Russian Research Institute of Experimental Physics" (Sarov, Nizhny Novgorod region.) Completed acceptance testing and the State Commission commissioned a high-performance multi-processor computer system petaflopnogo class, created in 2010
Created a super-computer is the most powerful in Russia and is based on the advanced technical and architectural solutions, including the original development of FSUE "VNIIEF." Computing system is equipped with the system software, the main components of which are well developed and adapted specialists nuclear center.
Commissioning of the computer system petaflopsnogo class advanced reiterated Russia’s position on the creation of super-computers (12th place in the ranking of the world’s Top-500 and first place in the CIS in Top-50). Computing system for the acceptance tests demonstrated the capacity to solve production problems with the efficiency of parallelization and scaling up to 90%, which corresponds to the best world standards. The complex was put into operation on 9 months ahead of schedule.
Construction of the complex is made in the framework of the Commission under the President of the Russian Federation on modernization and technological development of the Russian economy "Development of supercomputers and grid computing." Much of the computational resources super-computers will be allocated to enterprises of high-tech industries (aviation, nuclear, aerospace, automotive) to settle in remote mode for the benefit of the design and development of high-tech competitive products.
