Fujitsu has been selected to upgrade The Australian National University’s supercomputer at the Canberra institution. The new machine dubbed Gadi will replace the existing one, Raijin, also build by Fujitsu back in 2012.

Gadi will be operated by the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) and it is expected to replace the existing machine in November 2019.

The project is backed by a $70 million funding provided by the Australian Government under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

The solution Fujitsu will provide is based on its own technology and also counts on tech from Lenovo, Intel, Nvidia, NetApp, Mellanox Technologies, DDN (Lustre), Altair and APC by Schneider Electric

“NCI plays a pivotal role in the national research landscape, and the supercomputer is the centrepiece of this important work,” said professor Brian Schmidt, vice-chancellor at ANU.
