Supercomputing Wales – enabling scientific research and discoveries across the country

Supercomputing Wales is a £15m programme of investment led by Cardiff University, along with Aberystwyth University, Bangor University and Swansea University. A total of £9m has been committed by the European Regional Development Fund via Welsh Government, matched by multi-million pound investments by the university partners.

The Facilities

The supercomputer hubs, to be fully upgraded during 2018, are based at Cardiff and Swansea universities, with research teams across the consortium universities accessing the two hubs through high-speed network connections. In total, the facilities consist of 12,000 cores connected to high speed memory and storage.

World-class research

Academic areas supported by the Supercomputing Wales facilities include Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, including Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology; as well as Environmental, E-Science, Health, Medical and the Social Sciences.

The Supercomputing Wales Research Software Engineers (RSEs) work with established research teams across a range of disciplines within the consortium universities to help deliver software engineering solutions and algorithms that harness multi-core computing for data-driven simulation, translating specific research needs into high performance computing applications, either by porting existing code or designing and developing new software from scratch, as appropriate for each specific problem.
