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.

7 June 2021 - Singapore developing its own ‘crystal ball’ for better climate projections

The effects of planetary warming are clear. Global temperatures and sea levels are rising, certain extreme weather events could intensify, and rainfall patterns could become more erratic. But at a finer resolution, many questions remain about how these changes would manifest in Singapore and South-east Asia. For instance, how fast would sea levels rise around the city-state, and how high could the waters go? If rainfall patterns change, would the country experience more droughts or flash floods? These are questions that scientists at the Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) – a division under the National Environment Agency’s Meteorological Service Singapore – are looking into. CCRS is working with the National Supercomputing Centre to downscale these models to produce grid cells spanning from about 2km to 8km. Find out more about their work in this News Article.

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.
