SKIF Cyberia Supercomputer
In 2006, Tomsk State University was one of the 17 universities to win in the Russian competition of innovative educational programs. One of the results of this competition was the formation of the Tomsk State University's supercomputing cluster jointly funded by the federal government and co-financing from the extra budgetary funds of the university and assembled by T-Platforms.
At the initial time of inauguration, it was one of the top 100 supercomputers on the planet. And, for more than a year, it was the fastest supercomputer in both Eastern Europe and the CIS.
It has since been modernised several times. Once in 2010. And, again in 2015. As of September 2018, the cluster has 11.8 terabytes of memory, 564 Xeon 5150s, 696 Xeon 5670s, 50 Xeon E5-2695 V3s, and 50 Tesla K80s for a total peak performance of 106.82 teraflops.
