Danish supercomputer in Iceland to cut cost

The next High Perfomance Computing facility of the Danish Meteorological Institute, will be located in Iceland, due to cost efficiency and the green energy.

The next High Perfomance Computing facility of the Danish Meteorological Institute, will be located in Iceland, due to the weather. 

According to the DMI website there are many good reasons to move the location of the next generation HPC facility from Copenhagen to Iceland; "but most importantly the energy produced in Iceland is 100% CO2 neutral as generated by geothermic and hydroelectric power stations." According to plan the new HPC facility will be installed in autumn 2015 and be in production from beginning of 2016.

The new facility will be installed in cooperation with the Icelandic Met Office and marks increased collaboration and research cooperation between the institutes. The new HPC will have about ten times higher computational power, enabling it to run models with a better prediction of severe weather phenomena.
