Cy-Tera: An innovative hybrid machine which is the first supercomputer in Cyprus, and the biggest open access supercomputer in the Middle East The mission of the High Performance Computing facility is to provide compute and data resources to the research community of Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region, and to establish itself as the national supercomputing facility of Cyprus Professor Ekaterinaris' group were allocated 200,000 CPU hours on Cy-Tera and performed computational fluid dynamic techniques on time-varying geometries, specifically for motions that reflect biological aquatic swimming. The group investigated the forces acting upon different types of arms which could be used upon an aquatic swimming robot. With nine publications prepared as a result of this allocation, their work will contribute to the development of future bio-inspired robotic devices. Dr. Manthos Papadopoulos' group from the National Hellenic Research Foundation was awarded a total of 64000 CPU and 34000 GPU hours on Cy-Tera to address a series of questions associated with the activation and inhibition mechanisms of 20S proteasome by organic molecules such as SDS. The findings of the project are expected to assist towards regulation of 20S functions. Quantum simulations can help us search for dark matter that is believed to form about 21% of the universe. Prof. Constantia's Alexandrou group from CaSToRC of The Cyprus Institute used Cy-Tera and Piz Daint, the largest supercomputer in Europe, to improve probes for dark matter. Prof. Noak Soker's group from the Israel Institute of Technology was allocated a total of 75000 CPU hours on Cy-Tera to examine the main heating processes of the intra-cluster medium (ICM) of cooling flow clusters of galaxies in response to multiple jet-activity cycles, especially the effect of shock waves, turbulence, and mixing of the ICM gas with the hot shocked jet gas. The findings of the project have direct implications to the understanding of the evolution of the ga in clusters of galaxies, and the rate of star formation. Indirectly, the results can shed light on the formation of galaxies. Temperature and Wind forecast for Cyprus. The Cyprus Meteorological Service runs weather models on the Cy-Tera supercomputer on a daily basis to obtain results for the weather forecast of Cyprus.
