Victoria University hunts high performance computing providers

Wellington’s Victoria University is seeking high performance computing providers to give an overview of the functionality, benefits and pricing of their solution. The University currently runs silo-ed services, including a virtual research server, two distributed high throughput computing environments, school-based services and national services. It says computational resources, software availability and support structures have not been reviewed or expanded for some time. It says the release of the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology’s Roadmaps for Science, the Transformational Research, Science and Technology targets and the impending implementation of the National eScience Infrastructure, the delivery of a scalable, customer- focused and fully-supported high performance computing service at Victoria is becoming increasingly important. A new facility is needed to meet the requirements of academics and research institutions whose research funding and outcomes are dependent on an increasing need for high processing, fast memory and large scale storage resources, the university says. It says information should be delivered by 22 October.
