Addressing the challenges of supercomputing in higher ed

In 1964, the Control Data Corporation delivered a mainframe computer, the CDC 6600, to the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in California for high energy nuclear physics research. The CDC 6600 was the world’s fastest computer at the time, firing the metaphorical start pistol for the ongoing race to create the most powerful supercomputers.

Since then, universities around the world have embraced High Performance Computing (HPC) to conduct research in fields such as genomics, proteomics, computational chemistry, molecular dynamics, bioinformatics and more.
