The University of Adelaide, one of Australia’s leading research universities, wanted to better support researchers from a wide range of disciplines. Previously, researchers had to compete for limited external HPC facilities, which often left groups without enough compute resources or resulted in delays in securing access. With Phoenix, a supercomputer based on a Lenovo NeXtScale System M5 cluster with over 3,800 Intel® Xeon® processor cores, the university can now offer researchers a powerful, state-of-the-art research tool, helping to enhance its status as a world-class research center.
“Our supercomputer enables researchers to access a facility exponentially larger than the limited portions of shared facilities they previously relied on.”
—Mark Gregory, CIO, University of Adelaide
