RCC’s groundbreaking data-intensive high performance computer, FlashLite, has been allocated its first round of National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme projects. Of the nine projects in total, seven are from outside Queensland.
Spanning biology, chemistry, physics, agricultural and veterinary science, medical and health sciences, maths, engineering, IT and computing, these national project proposals demonstrate innovative ways of using a data-intensive machine. With its very large virtual shared memory and flash disks, FlashLite can process volumes of data like no other machine in Australia.
RCC and the QRIScloud Help Desk are busy working with each project’s chief investigator and their respective teams to guide them towards the most constructive use of the hardware as well as preparing accounts and establishing access to FlashLite.
