A supercomputer is, in fact, a universal research laboratory. Through entered algorithms, it allows users to model and simulate solutions to problems for a wide range of scientific disciplines. Examples include computer experiments concerning nuclear waste depositories, the optimization of different machinery such as automobiles and the simulation of effects of different drugs, including those intended for treating cancer. Supercomputers contribute to the development of different areas of science and many branches of industry. Supercomputing centres are mainly used for research and development that are highly dependent on demanding computer simulations and computations. Supercomputers make it possible to process a large quantity of data. They are often the only devices that can help solve a difficult scientific problem. Technically speaking, the word supercomputer is a general term used to describe high-performance computer, but recently it has also been used to describe a cluster, which is several computers combined.
