CAS Supercomputing Environment
CNIC started the earliest scientific computing application and service in China in 1996.
In 2015, the supercomputer “Era”, the sixth generation computing system at the Supercomputing Center of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has completed the optimization and improvement of the system, which improves the computing operation efficiency and stability. After the second stage of the “Era” system construction, a new voyage will start from a petascale power by providing more high-quality computing service which will benefit the large-scale and high performance computing users from the CAS to the whole society.
