From 10 gigabit, the now upgraded high performance data center is fully equipped with mega servers and hardware components with 400 gigabit capacity.
Tan says he hopes that the upgrade of the Core Computational Facility or ‘UP Data Commons’ will further strengthen the capacity of the University as a leading research institution in the Philippines dedicated to the science of high-performance computing and computing-related research activities towards scientific and engineering breakthroughs.
“It is an honor for the LT Group and our affiliate companies to be able to associate with the University’s endeavor to accelerate innovation and provide quality education as we both recognize that innovation is a complex matter and turning ideas and strategies into action is a formidable challenge,” says Tan.
