DKK 100 million supercomputer up and running at Technical University of Denmark

On Monday, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) started up the most powerful computer in the country, reports the engineering magazine Ingenøren. The DKK 100 million supercomputer, weighing over a ton and containing 160 CPUs, is a gift from Sun Microsystems and one of the largest donations ever made from a private company to a Danish university. The start up marked the opening of the “Centre for High Performance Computing” at the university, attended by DTU management, senior Danish managers from Sun Microsystems and Helge Sander, Denmark’s Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation. In his address the Minister praised the initiative as a demonstration of the attractiveness of co-operation between university and business life.
