NCSA to provide Ember as shared-memory resource for nation's researchers

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) will soon deploy a new highly parallel shared memory supercomputer, called Ember. With a peak performance of 16 teraflops, Ember doubles the performance of its predecessor, the five-year-old Cobalt system.

Ember will be available to researchers through the National Science Foundation's TeraGrid until that program concludes in March 2011 and then will be allocated through its successor, the eXtreme Digital program.
