King Abdulaziz (KAU) is the largest university in Saudi Arabia with more than 140,000 students and 6,000 faculty staff. Their challenges are to enable the rapid processing of vast volumes of data, boosting its ability to research while also offering HPC cloud services. They chose Fujitsu to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Fujitsu Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for HPC and delivered an integrated and certified cluster-type supercomputer with a theoretical peak performance of 230 teraflops. The results of implementing Fujitsu were high-end computational modelling and simulation capabilities beyond academia and for the commercial and manufacturing industries in the Kingdom, improved execution time of different applications such as Genomic Analysis Toolkit, WRF, COSMO, OpenFOAM and delivers capacity required to perform the most sophisticated and computer-intensive simulations for the country.
