Hewlett Packard Enterprise Awarded $35 Million Contract
A $35 million contract was awarded to Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The company will be building a supercomputer for the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). NCAR wants this system to help them create more accurate digital models of environmental events, such as wildfires and hurricanes. With the new supercomputer’s bigger storage, better software, and faster processing speeds (about 3.5 times faster), they will be able to better process the image data.
New technology is always important in the science community as it allows them to better understand systems around them, like on Earth, with more accurate data from better powered research and deeper insights. The supercomputer is designed with high performance computing and NCAR plans to use the system to make predictions into the future up to 10 years.
Are you developing new technology? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify).
