Expansion of The Berzelius SuperPOD

Sweden's fastest academic supercomputer for AI and machine learning, Berzelius at NSC, is being expanded. During the late spring 2023, Berzelius will be expanded with 34 more DGX-A100 compute nodes, bringing the total number up to 94, with a total computational capacity of 470 PFLOPS (AI).

To recognize the significance of the expansion and the scientific accomplishments enabled by Berzelius thus far, NSC was visited by the donors of Berzelius, the "Knut och Alice Wallenberg" foundation (KAW), and Hardware supplier Nvidia, prominently featuring Marcus Wallenberg of KAW as well as Nvidia co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
