National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center), arranged by the nation, is a major scientific and technological infrastructure project in Shenzhen with largest single investment since the establishment of the city. It belongs to the National 863 Program, and is also an important project both in Guangdong Province and Shenzhen. Meanwhile, to accomplish such a project is also a concrete action to implement the Outline of the Reform and Development of the Pearl River Delta (2008-2020) and Overall Program of Shenzhen’s Comprehensive Reform, which is of great significance to promote the development of national high-performance computation and enhance China's comprehensive national strength and international competitiveness.
National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center), with the total investment of 1.23 billion yuan, covers a construction area of 12,000 square meters at the first stage. The total construction area of it is 43,000 square meters, among which the research building covers 31,000 square meters with 16 floors above ground and 2 underground floors, and the machinery building covers 12,000 square meters with 4 floors on the ground and 1 basement.
The mainframe system of National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center) is developed by the Institute of Computing Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and manufactured by the Dawning Information Industry (Beijing) Co., Ltd. In May 2010, as measured by the national supercomputer organization, the Linpacks Performance was confirmed as 1.271 PFlop/s, ranking the second in the world at that time. The mainframe system is equipped with a variety of large and medium-sized auxiliary equipments for a total of over 520 units, which include nearly 3,000 intelligent engineering equipments, more than 20,000 modules and 20,000 telecommunications outlets; the strong electrical cable in the machinery room reaches as long as 15 km, the wire is of 130 km long, the fiber optic cable reaches 30 km and the Category 6 cable is of 200 km long.
90% of the professionals, technical staff and managements of National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center) have the master's or doctoral degree, and the majority of them have studied overseas. A technological innovation platform with hundreds of high-end talents is expected to be built in 2012.
Based in Shenzhen and faced the country to serve the South China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and Southeast Asia, National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center) will accomplish a variety of large-scale scientific computing and engineering computing tasks, while provide cloud computing services for the society with its upcoming data processing and storage capacity. It will be build into a world-class energy efficient high-performance computing research and development center and cloud computing service center with full-featured platforms.
