Cheyenne, Wyoming Welcomes $70M Supercomputing Center

06/15/2010
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has selected Cheyenne, Wyoming for its $70 million Supercomputing Center. The project is scheduled for completion next summer. The Center will house one of the world's fastest supercomputers to be used for science research on subjects including weather, climate, oceanography, air pollution, space weather, and energy productions.

"We could get more computing power, almost double as much, and a faster start and larger facility in Cheyenne than any other site," said Rick Anthes, president of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, which manages the project. "And that means you can almost immediately increase the computing power, which supports research in our atmospheric science community."

Cheyenne was chosen for its cool, dry climate; strategic location of transportation and communication hubs; access to national fiber optic networks; abundant power; and a $20 million appropriation by the Wyoming Legislature for the project.
