CSC datacenter in Kajaani will host one of the most competitive supercomputers in the world

The machine will be about ten times more powerful than the most powerful supercomputer currently in Europe. The decision was made by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, a high performance computing (HPC) initiative supported by the European countries and the European Union. The countries involved are Finland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland. This decision will provide highly competitive HPC resources for Europe’s scientific, industrial and public users. In addition, it will provide a framework for Europe to strengthen its position as one of the pioneers of the data-driven economy.
