The Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC) is growing its new industry HPC system, named Cirrus, five times larger to provide a state-of-the-art multi-core HPC service for science and industry. A next generation research data store, dedicated to Tier-2 users, is being installed to allow researchers to store data, share it and move it between different supercomputers.

Led by: Professor Mark Parsons, University of Edinburgh. EPSRC grant: £2,400,000.

Partners: Universities of Edinburgh, Bristol, Leeds and Strathclyde, and UCL.

The centres were officially launched on Thursday 30 March at the Thinktank science museum in Birmingham.
