RIKEN is Japan’s largest comprehensive research institution, exploring health, brain, and life sciences, accelerator science, physical sciences, and computational science, among others. RIKEN needed to support more large-scale and medium-scale computation-intensive workloads across the sciences in which RIKEN researchers work, including quantum chromodynamics (QCD), condensed matter physics, quantum chemistry, and biophysics. This case study looks at why RIKEN chose the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor for its BigWaterfall supercomputer.
