Turbocharging New Zealand Science
The BlueFern Grand Challenge aims to drive New Zealand science forward using HPC. We have set aside a million CPU hours specifically for large-scale HPC codes that address significant research problems. Not only will BlueFern be helping NZ researchers solve the most challenging problems, but we will also act as a pathway to overseas programs such as the American INCITE program that awards tens of millions of CPU hours on petaflop systems.
The BlueFern® HPC Grand Challenge is best for:
- High impact science and engineering
- Huge runs that you cannot do anywhere else
- Jobs that can use at least 1/4 of the system for hours to days
- Research campaigns requiring millions of CPU hours
- Computations that are efficient on the BlueFern BlueGene system
