German Chemistry Giant BASF May Open a New Era in Chemical Research with Supercomputers. BASF, computing firm to develop one of the largest and fastest supercomputers for industry-driven chemical research Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) agreed.
Towards the end of this year, the company will start R&D digitization studies with the supercomputer to be installed at BASF's headquarters in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
The specially designed supercomputer will have a processing speed of 1 petaflop, enabling it to perform one quadrillion operations per second. HPE can handle multiple compute nodes simultaneously on complex tasks. Apollo 6000 based system.
Consulting firm IDC Research says high-end supercomputers will cost more than $3 million.
BASF predicts that the new computer will answer tough questions in all areas of research, and results that could take several months will now be reduced to a few days. As a result, the company virtual experiment plans to significantly expand its use.

The computer will also open up entirely new areas of research at BASF, said Martin Brudermueller, the company's head of technology.
Companies in industries such as oil and gas, aerospace, life sciences and financial services already use supercomputers for very complex calculations and simulations. BASF expects the new supercomputer to be the most powerful in the chemical industry.
