With the installation of the Fujitsu Primergy Sandy Bridge Systems in Swansea and Cardiff, HPC Wales now has the 3rd largest supercomputing capability in the UK and is one of the top 100 facilities globally. We have helped 100 businesses in a variety of sectors gain an understanding of high performance computing and its relevance in their business, and trained over 500 individuals. In addition, we have helped to create 63 new jobs and supported the establishment of 3 new high tech enterprises. We have attracted nearly £1.5m inward investment into Wales and 170 individuals have now registered onto degree courses that have an HPC Wales supported supercomputing module.
The demand for knowledge about high performance computing is high, and we are really pleased that HPC Wales are able to help businesses and researchers to harness this knowledge and benefit from the power of supercomputing. I am particularly pleased to have seen the establishment of nearly 50 collaborative projects and look forward to supporting more businesses and researchers, helping them to improve their research and innovation capability, and helping to make the Welsh economy more vibrant.
