Supercomputing centers: a new engine for innovation in China



China has 6 centers in Tianjin, Shenzhen, Jinan, Changsha, Guangzhou and Wuxi


China is certainly one of those countries where a lot has been invested over the years to build and innovate those computers that can calculate a huge amount of data. China has built six National Supercomputing Centers (NSCC) since 2009. These centers, as confirmed by the NSCC in northern China Tianjin Municipality, which celebrated the tenth anniversary of the foundation of the center, were a new driver for innovation of the country.

The expansion path of these centers begins when the NSCC foundation in Tianjin was approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology in May 2009. Subsequently, five other supercomputing centers were founded one after another in Shenzhen, Jinan, Changsha , Guangzhou and Wuxi.


Tianjin has created a complete industry of autonomous information


Being the first supercomputing center in China, the NSCC in Tianjin is not only the first supercomputer in China for Tianhe-1 petaflop, but is also responsible for the development of the new generation of Chinese exascale supercomputer Tianhe-3.

Among the sectors and materials researched by Tianjin is a complete sector of autonomous information including high-performance chips, an autonomous control system, high-performance servers and databases, developing a model for transforming the results of technological innovation. This was confirmed by Li Xiang, vice president of the National University of Defense Technology.

Mei Jianping, deputy general manager of the Department of High and New Technology of the Ministry of Science and Technology, said: “The supercomputer has become a symbol of power that reflects China’s innovative capabilities, so we will link these supercomputing centers and share resources at national level “.
