The "Light of Wuzhen" Supercomputer Center in Jiaxing, Zhejiang province was included on the list of ten significant achievements in digital economic innovation and development in Zhejiang province, according to the Economy and Information Technology Department of Zhejiang.
The computer power of the first phase of the "Light of Wuzhen" Supercomputer Center is 180PFlops, reaching the highest international level.
The supercomputer center is the first large-scale supercomputer center in Zhejiang and will provide computing power support for universities, enterprises, research institutes and key laboratories in the province, as well as serve scientific and technological innovation, industrial transformation and upgrading, and urban social development.
In March, the HPL (High Performance Linpack) benchmark test of the supercomputing center was recognized by the expert group of China's top 100 high-performance computers.
It has undertaken computing projects from the Institute of Automation of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Zhejiang Ecological and Environmental Monitoring Center, and its utilization rate of computing power has reached 40 percent.
Since the supercomputing center started operation, it has attracted a number of projects related to genetic engineering, autonomous driving, industrial Internet, and chip testing, involving a total investment of about 500 million yuan ($74.03 million).
