Cloud possible as NIWA seeks a new super computer

The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) is in the market for a new super computer but is also open to public cloud solutions. 

Workloads include four daily production weather forecasts, model testing and the development of future models and potential additional forecast production frequencies. 

Previous generations of super computers have been installed at NIWA in 1999, 2010, and in 2017, when the Crown research institute's current Cray hardware was bought in a six-year, $31.7 million deal. 

That system currently runs the UK Met Office's unified model forecasting application and features over 15 petabytes of archived tape storage. 

"NIWA has a talented but small group of high performance computing staff," a tender released on 1 September said. "So, the focus with this procurement is finding solutions that create an efficient and smoothly operating environment that allows the science staff to run their HPC workloads."
