The Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) in Cape Town (under the auspices of the CSIR's Meraka Institute) was launched in May 2007 and is a national centre initiated by the Department of Science and Technology. The first phase of computational procurement consists of an IBM e1350 Linux cluster with 160 nodes. It has successfully passed its initial benchmark requirements of 2.5 Teraflops. The facility is the largest computational science laboratory in southern Africa and provides a unique platform for high performance computing research in various fields.
