Our newest supercomputer was provided by the Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund (VHESIF) with operational support provided by Swinburne IT, the Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing (CAS), and funding from the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) through Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL).
Ngarrgu Tindebeek comprises over 11,000 AMD EPYC 7543 compute cores and 88 NVIDIA A100 graphics processing units (GPUs) connected by NDR Infiniband to an upgraded data storage facility.
OzSTAR is the current Swinburne supercomputer. Installed in 2018, a key role of OzSTAR is to underpin the computational efforts of the Swinburne-hosted Centre of Excellence in Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav).
The OzSTAR supercomputing environment is managed through the Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing with support from Swinburne IT. The supercomputing program receives continued financial support for operations from Astronomy Australia Limited and the Australian Commonwealth Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). The hardware for Ngarrgu Tindebeek was purchased through a grant from the Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund (VHESIF).
