Hyak Next Generation Supercomputer
Propelling UW research with double the computing power
A major upgrade to Hyak, the UW’s on-site shared cluster supercomputer, is helping to address the growing needs of the UW research community by offering:
The supercomputer is as an important engine supporting scientific and engineering research at the UW. It has helped the University retain or recruit nearly two dozen faculty members and brought in millions of dollars in grants. More than 60 research groups rely on Hyak to do their work.
“By reducing barriers and creating opportunity, Hyak doesn’t just allow UW researchers to do more of what they did before, but enables them to explore areas of research that would have otherwise been impossible,” said Chance Reschke, director of UW-IT’s Research Computing.
The original Hyak was installed in the UW Tower data center and began production on July 1, 2010. Demand has increased significantly, prompting a need for Hyak NextGen.
