They presented the Clementine 2 supercomputer And for those who think that only the big powers have supercomputers show them this note that there may be just around the corner.
Supercomputers are an important support tool for science, given its high capacity for simulation models and complex calculations. In the region, only Brazil has a machine of this type, which in developed countries is widely used by research centers.
With CLEMENTINA 2 also feel a basis for the development of Internet 2 Argentina in a high-speed track for scientific and academic
The Vice-president, Carlos Alvarez, and Secretary for Technology, Science and Innovation, Dante Caputo, presented General San Martín Cultural Center CLEMENTINA 2 supercomputer.
This tool, widely used in developed countries, will allow scientists and technologists Argentina have a vital resource for research needs faced computation complexity and high accuracy.
Furthermore, a significant percentage of scientific research and technological development requires the use of a high performance tool capable of performing parallel processing. Parallelism is precisely the distinctive feature of the supercomputer, as defined by the professionals who worked on the design of CLEMENTINA 2.
The supercomputer will also facilitate addressing new problems or more complex and facilitate the development of technology: a medium-term implementation will help improve the scientific and technological competitiveness of Argentina especially in the Mercosur. In the region, only one supercomputer in Brazil, so a center that offers advanced technology will influence not only in Argentina but also in other African countries.
Have a computer center like this facilitates numerical process and allows the simulation of scientific, industrial, environmental or social in complex, difficult models to address problems from conventional mechanisms.
For Argentina scientific community, which until now did not have easy access to these tools, have CLEMENTINA two will have a long reach, either by the eventual change of focus in research methodology or approach new planteos.
