The University of Southampton has turned on the most powerful university-based supercomputer in England, named Iridis4.
It will be used for research by University staff and students in engineering, archaeology, medicine and computer science.
Dr Oz Parchment, Director of Research Computing at the University said, "Southampton is a leader in High Performance Computing (HPC) and Iridis4 allows us to take another leap forward to keep pace with the needs of our world-class researchers."
In a deal worth £3.2 million, Southampton's new supercomputer is four times more powerful than its predecessor and has the skills to take control of some of the most demanding mathematical calculation, making one trillion calculation per second.
