New supercomputer system begins operations at University of Tokyo’s Information Technology Center


Fujitsu on Monday announced that it has completed construction of the new supercomputer, nicknamed Oakleaf-FX, for the Supercomputing Division of the University of Tokyo’s Information Technology Center (SCD/ITC).


The new Oakleaf-FX system, which employs Fujitsu’s PRIMEHPC FX10 supercomputer, is one of the few petaflops-class(1) systems in the world and achieves high energy efficiency, as low as 1.4MW for overall system power consumption.


Oakleaf-FX has been installed at the Second Research Complex, Kashiwa Campus, The University of Tokyo, located in Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture. In addition to contributing to SCD/ITC’s cutting-edge research in a wide range of scientific and technological fields, the new system will be used in High-Performance Computing (HPC) education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. As a result, it is expected to help train the next generation of leaders in the field of computational science.
