Supercomputer Simulation Laboratory

The laboratory's activities include:

  • Solving problems of supercomputer modeling to improve energy and resource efficiency of high-tech sectors of the economy and social sphere
  • Development of end-to-end design technologies using a supercomputer and distributed computing systems to create innovative energy and resource-saving industrial technologies
  • Development of theoretical and practical bases for building qualitatively new highly scalable methods and algorithms for data mining
  • Researching in the field of teaching methods of modern supercomputer modeling technologies

  The laboratory is equipped with a supercomputer "Tornado SUSU" — a complete solution developed by the group of companies "RSK". It consists of 480 compact and powerful liquid-cooled blade computing modules and features full liquid cooling of all electronic components and high energy efficiency. The peak performance of the supercomputer "Tornado SUSU" is 473 teraflops.

The SKIF-Aurora supercomputer is also installed in the laboratory. It consists of 736 compact and powerful liquid-cooled blade computing modules. Its peak performance is 117 teraflops.

SUSU Supercomputers provide high performance and currently it solves more than 250 problems in the field of science and education, namely, engineering, economics, chemistry, physics, big data analysis, creating digital twins and perform calculations for commercial purposes. The laboratory collaborates with other centers of supercomputer modeling in the Russian Federation and abroad. SUSU supercomputers occupy leading positions in the top 50 rating in Russia and CIS countries
