The Hartree Centre is a supercomputing centre, focused on bringing the benefits of high performance computing, high performance data analytics and cognitive computing to industry, to deliver “innovation at scale” and competitive advantage through digital transformation. We have recently purchased one of the largest supercomputers in the world on which to undertake our work and offer services. As an industrially-focused supercomputing centre, how do we see ourselves working with cloud providers and cloud-based solutions, to support UK industry?
