This supercomputer has an efficient data processing capacity that is used in researching complicated phenomenon like; earthquake aftershock forecasting, model black holes, map invisible ocean pollutants, flu tracking and details of star formation.

“Customers have come to rely on these strong partnerships with Lenovo to help them create the systems that will power discoveries and innovations to solve humanity’s greatest challenges in the years to come.”
