U of T + IBM = Supercomputer

The University of Toronto is joining forces with IBM. They hope to build a supercomputer among the top 20 in the world and the fastest in Canada. The computer has been optimized with respect to energy use and will have a dedicated building to house it at a projected cost of C$50 million over 5 years.

Not the first time that a major university has set their sights on a supercomputer. Good to see U of T stepping up to the likes of Virginia Tech and Indiana University who have long enjoyed the use of and prestige of managing such a system.
