Tianhe-2 supercomputer ranked first again and won the "three consecutive titles" of supercomputing in the world.
at the world supercomputer conference held in Leipzig, Germany, tianhe-2 supercomputer, developed by the University of defense technology and settled in the National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou, ranked first again and won the "three consecutive Titles" of supercomputing in the world. On the afternoon of June 23, at the world supercomputer conference held in Leipzig, Germany, TOP500 International released the 43rd World Top 500 supercomputer rankings. Tianhe-2 supercomputer, developed by the National University of defense technology and settled in the National Supercomputing Guangzhou center, once again topped the list, winning the third consecutive World supercomputing championship. This is also the fourth time that Tianhe series supercomputers have reached the top of supercomputing in the world
tianhe-2 is the National 863 plan and nuclear high-tech project undertaken by the University of national defense science and technology. An important point is to know the size range of the sample, a major national science and technology special project, and its comprehensive technology is at the international leading level. At present, tianhe-2 has been officially put into operation in the National Supercomputing Guangzhou center and is open to users at home and abroad. It has provided computing services for dozens of projects such as the National 863 plan, the 973 Plan and the National Natural Science Foundation of China. The application fields involve life science, material science, atmospheric science, geophysics, energy, cosmology, economics and other fields. It has played an important role in a series of major Sciences and projects related to the national economy and the people's livelihood, such as large-scale genome assembly, gene sequencing, biomedicine, high-throughput drug screening, pollution control, hypersonic engine combustion simulation and so on. It has been successfully applied in smart cities, e-government, cloud computing and information services. The high-precision aerodynamic calculation of the outflow field of C919 aircraft carried out by China Commercial Aircraft Design Co., Ltd. has achieved high-precision large-scale numerical simulation of the complex configuration of the whole aircraft for the first time in the world from the perspective of graphene's research and development in energy storage technology and other fields; The Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has carried out the evaluation of the binding affinity of 750000 small molecule compounds and completed the test and evaluation of the in vivo and in vitro activities of more than 600 kinds of drugs, providing a new way for the treatment of malignant tumors, hepatitis B, diabetes and other diseases. Tianhe-2 is also equipped with key business systems such as Guangzhou e-government data management system and cloud disk storage system, which has built an efficient and reliable bearing platform for Guangzhou e-government and smart city construction
the National Supercomputing Guangzhou center actively promoted international exchanges and cooperation, signed a memorandum of strategic cooperation with the National Supercomputing Center of the United Kingdom, and provided high-performance computing services to foreign research institutions. The German Munich University of technology and other cooperative teams used Tianhe II to conduct simulation research on the 1992 Landers earthquake in California, the United States, How the United States chooses one is satisfied. Georgia Institute of technology has carried out research on the mechanism of anti HIV drugs relying on tianhe-2, and Mr. Gao has made important research results
up to now, tianhe-2 has more than 120 users, has carried out more than 300 typical application calculations, and has achieved significant economic and social benefits. At the same time, it has trained a number of supercomputing application technicians for users. It is understood that Sun Yat sen University has established the supercomputing college relying on the National Supercomputing Guangzhou center, and carried out the training of supercomputing application talents
since the 11th five year plan, the Ministry of science and technology has continuously increased its investment in the research and development of supercomputing application software. During the 12th Five Year Plan period, the research and development investment has reached more than 200million yuan, and it will further increase its investment in this area in the future.
