All about RICC: RIKEN Integrated Cluster of Clusters (IEEE)
This is an introduction to RIKEN’s supercomputer RICC (RIKEN Integrated Cluster of Clusters), that has been in operation since August 2009. The basic concept of
the RICC is “provide high power computational resources for research and development for RIKEN’s researchers”. Based on this concept, we have been providing for (i) data analysis environment for experimental researchers, (ii) development environment which targeting for the Next-Generation Supercomputer; “K” computer, and (iii) GPU computers for challenges to a future computer environment. Its total performance is 97.94 TFlops which is ranked 56th in the Top500 list in Jun.
2010. The RICC has keeping very high activity ratio (over 90%) from the beginning of the operation.
