The IT4Innovations national supercomputing centre is a research institution of the VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava (TUO). The first part of the supercomputer, the Anselm supercomputer, was installed into temporary mobile units in May 2013. Its theoretical computing performace is at 94 TFLOPs. Supercomputer Salomon, which is the 40th most powerful supercomputer in the world was put into operation in July 2015.
Both supercomputers are permanently placed in the new building on the TUO's grounds.
In addition to operating the supercomputer, the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre provides excellent research in the field of IT, namely HPC (High Performance Computing) and embedded systems. Research is being jointly performed by five entities: in addition to the VŠB-Technical University Ostrava, the University of Ostrava, the Silesian University in Opava, the Brno University of Technology and The Institute of Geonics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. IT4Innovations is also part of the prestigious partnership of European supercomputing centres associated in the PRACE initiative. The IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre was established mainly thanks to European funds, namely the Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovation. The subsidy amounted to approximately CZK 1.8 billion.
