HPC in a Global Weather Environment

Between 2012 and 2022, CoreHive Computing collaborated with IBM in upgrading the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputing System (WCOSS). Among the most powerful high-performance computing (HPC) systems in the world, WCOSS plays a vital role in providing forecasts, watches, warnings, and sharing data for public and international use.

The upgraded system seamlessly integrated IBM and Cray supercomputing systems using Spectrum Scale, resulting in a computational speed of 8.4 petaflops. The new system empowers NOAA to process larger data volumes and generate higher-resolution weather models, resulting in more precise forecasts and enhanced support services to communities worldwide. By successfully meeting the stringent performance requirements of the WCOSS contract, CoreHive Computing demonstrated its expertise in delivering and supporting HPC systems.
