Moscow State University - A Holistic Approach to Supercomputing

Prof. Dr. Vladimir Voevodin
Deputy Director of the Research Computing Center, Lomonosov Moscow State University


The history of computers at Moscow State University goes back to the mid-fifties of the 20th century when Research Computing Center of Moscow State University was founded in 1955 and equipped with up-to-date computing hardware. Since the end of the 1990s, Moscow State University has begun to exploit high-performance computing systems based on cluster technologies. Now, Moscow State University Supercomputing Center has two systems included in the Top500 list and the major computing facility of the Center is the "Lomonosov" supercomputer with a recently increased peak performance up to 1.7 PFlops.
Today more than 500 scientific groups from Moscow State University, institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and other educational and scientific organizations of Russia are the users of Moscow University Supercomputing Center. The main areas of fundamental research with supercomputer applications are magnetohydrodynamics, quantum chemistry, seismology, drug design, geology, material science, global climatic changes, nanotechnology, cryptography, bioinformatics, bioengineering, astronomy, etc.
Supercomputing activities and projects of MSU as well as major national supercomputing activities will be presented in the talk, and special emphasis will be done on the presidential project “Supercomputing Education”.
