Bridges-2, PSC's newest supercomputer, will debut in the fall of 2020. It will be funded by a $10-million grant from the National Science Foundation.
Bridges-2 will provide transformative capability for rapidly evolving, computation-intensive and data-intensive research, creating opportunities for collaboration and convergence research. It will support both traditional and non-traditional research communities and applications. Bridges-2 will integrate new technologies for converged, scalable HPC, machine learning and data; prioritize researcher productivity and ease of use; and provide an extensible architecture for interoperation with complementary data-intensive projects, campus resources, and clouds.
Bridges-2 will be available at no cost for research and education, and at cost-recovery rates for other purposes.
