"In 1964, the Control Data Corporation delivered a mainframe computer, the CDC 6600, to the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in California for high energy nuclear physics research. The CDC 6600 was the world’s fastest computer at the time, firing the metaphorical start pistol for the ongoing race to create the most powerful supercomputers."—Source: eCampus News
WHY THIS MATTERS:
Supercomputers could open up next-level research in higher education, but costs and complexity can be a stumbling block for some institutions. Read how to tackle these challenges and unlock the benefits of HPC.
