The NWSC facility is administered by NCAR’s Computational & Information Systems Lab. Comprehensive documentation and assistance with the supercomputing resources powering atmospheric research and the broader geo-sciences community is available at the links below:
The NWSC is the result of a partnership between University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), the State of Wyoming, the University of Wyoming, Cheyenne LEADS, Wyoming Business Council, Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power Company. The NWSC is operated by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation.
Q: Yellowstone, the NWSC’s first supercomputer, performs one and a half quadrillion calculations per second. How long would it take you to count to that number?
A: If you counted one number per second, it would take you well over 47 million years.
