National Supercomputer Centre – Linköping University
Nordic’s largest supercomputer is nowhere but here in Linköping at LiU! It was a visit during the second semester that my classmates and I got access to when we took a course Big Data Analytics. Our labs required us to use an HDFS cluster. It is partnered by a few companies out here in Linköping along with LiU like The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institue (SMHI) to manage weather information, MET Norway (civil and military service) using NSC for weather forecasts, SAAB – the Swedish military defense, traffic management, and security company for obtaining various calculations from their data. NSC provides services for high-performance computing and data services to academic institutions.
