Tucked away inside a modest-looking building at the Australian National University is the most powerful supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere.
Its high-performance computer, Raijin, is able to cope with enormous amounts of data. “We have over 50 petabytes of research data stored at NCI and a high-performance cloud,” NCI spokesperson Lucy Guest said. In digital storage terms, one petabyte is 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes (one quadrillion bytes or 1,000 terabytes).
