Powerful CARC system gets a name
New system almost ready for users
A new computing system donated to the Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) from Los Alamos Laboratory (LANL) will be the largest system at
Wheeler will support larger, more complex research calculations by UNM faculty, staff, and student researchers. It is designed to enhance research in a wide variety of fields, including chemistry, physics, biology, material science, climate modeling, medicine, genetics, and urban planning. Wheeler will also enable a broad array of emerging research on

The new system is five times more powerful than the combined computing power of the four machines it is replacing, said CARC interim director Patrick Bridges. The machine was acquired from LANL through the National Science Foundation-sponsored PR0bE project, which is run by the New Mexico Consortium. The NMC, comprising UNM, New Mexico State, and New Mexico Tech universities, engages universities and industry in scientific research in the nation's interest and to increase the role of LANL in science, education, and economic development.
