Severe weather and seasonal climate phenomena have a profound impact on both human population as well as the world economics. Innovative HPC system architectures are required to meet the demands of the Earth Sciences community, and investment in the best technological platform for Earth Sciences studies is a vital component in disaster mitigation and economic recovery opportunities.
The ever-growing computational demands of weather and climate studies have been a driving factor in massive HPC technological advances. System requirements for sustained performance and more accurate representations of physical phenomena grew exponentially as the science evolved. Scalable operating systems, interconnect networks, and high-efficiency parallel programming HPC system architectures that reach well beyond simple processor speeds are required to handle the increasing scientific complexity of these studies.
The Weather and Earth Sciences sector has relied heavily upon Aspens Systems, Inc. for over 30 years. We have designed, manufactured and serviced some of the world leading edge high-performance computing solutions to the worlds top Earth Sciences facilities. Observation processing, data assimilation, forecast simulation and the ability to manage the exponential increase in data requirements have been provided by our technological platforms.
