Parallel Information Technologies Lab
Parallel Information Technologies Lab RCC MSU was established in 1999 on the basis of a nonlinear computing laboratory, organized in 1992 on the initiative of V.M. Repin, who at that time headed the RCC and coordinated the work of the laboratory in the first years of its existence. From 1995 to the present, the laboratory is headed by Vladimir Valentinovich Voevodin, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The research carried out by the laboratory staff formed the basis for the creation of a supercomputer complex on the basis of the Parallel Information Technologies Lab of the Research Computing Center.
Moscow State University Supercomputing Center exploits substantially “Lomonosov” and “Lomonosov-2” supercomputers, at the same time several machines of smaller scale are available. The MSU HPC flagship is 4.9 PFlops “Lomonosov-2” supercomputer. Its already built infrastructure allows further supercomputer upgrades and expansion. Taking the supercomputing road about 20 years ago, Moscow State University Supercomputing Center is planning to move forward to exaflops and further in the future.
