The IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre is purchasing its supercomputer technology in two stages. In spring 2013, we put a “small cluster” into operation. Currently, we are selecting a supplier for the final part of the supercomputer, the large cluster, to be available to users towards the end of 2014.
