The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) has selected MathWorks‘ MATLAB and the MATLAB Distributed Computing Service to grant researchers at Swedish universities access to national data centers for high-performance computing (HPC).
A national research infrastructure, SNIC provides a set of resources for large-scale computation and data storage. This partnership between SNIC and MATLAB will allow for greater collaboration between academic colleges across Sweden, the company says. The infrastructure supports research in all scientific disciplines through an open-application procedure.
The MATLAB Distributed Computing Server launched at SNIC’s six data centers in April, allowing researchers to create parallel MATLAB applications then scale them to the SNIC server.
“MathWorks is pleased to enable this first-of-its-kind access arrangement with a nation,” said Silvina Grad-Freilich, senior manager for parallel-computing marketing at MathWorks. “At many of Sweden’s universities, MATLAB is already widely accessible. The addition of MATLAB Distributed Computing Server to SNIC to tie the universities together for increased collaboration and HPC access is a logical next step for MATLAB to add continuous value to customers.”
