Juniper to Provide Networking Infrastructure for Natl Center for Atmospheric Research Supercomputer

Juniper-Networks-logo EbizThe federally funded National Center for Atmospheric Research has selected Juniper Networks to build the networking infrastructure for a new supercomputer that scientists will use to forecast climate patterns and analyze the effects of global warming.

Juniper said Wednesday the machine will be deployed to the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center this fall and is designed to generate 5.34 quadrillion calculations per second.

Tim Solms, vice president of Juniper Networks’ federal sales business, said the company will support the development of the supercomputing platform in an effort to help researchers study the effects of weather and climate on the world’s populations and environments.

“The network will allow scientists around the world to access resources and foster a community of global collaboration,” said Al Kellie, associate director at NCAR’s computational and information systems laboratory.

Juniper noted the supercomputer network will work to help researchers process climate data and perform predictive weather analysis as well as share their findings with colleagues worldwide.

NCAR, backed by the National Science Foundation, conducts research programs to gather input on the behavior of the atmosphere as well as related Earth and geospace systems for the scientific community.
