NSCC Stakeholders

A National Research Infrastructure Offering Petascale Supercomputing Resources

NSCC Singapore was established in 2015 and manages Singapore’s first national petascale facility with available high performance computing (HPC) resources. As a National Research Infrastructure funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF), we support the HPC research needs of the public and private sectors, including research institutes, institutes of higher learning (IHLs), government agencies and companies.

19 Nov 2021 - Singapore researchers granted regular access to reigning world’s top supercomputer in first-of-its-kind arrangement with Japan

A new agreement between Japan’s Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) and National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore opens the path for Singapore researchers to regularly access and request for supercomputing resources from the world’s most powerful supercomputer, Japan’s Fugaku system. In the first such arrangement of its kind outside of Japan, Singapore researchers can now apply for available resources through an annual Call for Projects to Fugaku, which will be coordinated by NSCC and RIST. The agreement which was signed between RIST and NSCC is a milestone for both organisations. The agreement builds on an earlier Memorandum of Understanding on Information Exchange Concerning Promotion of Supercomputer Utilization between RIST and NSCC.

19 Nov 2021 - HPC-AI Advisory Council Announces the Winners of the 4th APAC HPC-AI Competition

The HPC-AI Advisory Council (HPCAIAC) and National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore today announced the university team winners of its annual HPC-AI challenge, the 4th APAC HPC-AI Competition. This year’s competition consisted of 36 teams from 13 countries and regions in APAC. With the continued support of NSCC Singapore, student competitors were provided with hands-on access to the Singapore-based advanced supercomputing resources. Teams were challenged with mastering one HPC task (GROMACS) and one AI task (DLRM), the same complex HPC and AI workloads that are integral to today’s major applications.

28 April 2021 - Singapore's newest national supercomputer on track to meet future smart nation and research needs

NSCC Singapore has awarded the tender for the development of the next generation national supercomputer system plus upgrades to the national storage and research network infrastructure. The new system is expected to provide up to 10 Petaflops (10 PFLOPS) of computing capacity and is eight times more powerful than the current supercomputer. The new supercomputer is the first in a series of systems that will form the backbone of the nation’s future supercomputing resources which will support research in areas like climate change, biomedical science and smart nation activities.
