LUMI received honors in the HPCwire readers' choice awards 2023

LUMI has been recognized in the 20th Anniversary edition of the HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards, presented at the 2023 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC23), in Denver, Colorado. The list of winners was revealed at the SC23 HPCwire booth, as well as on the HPCwire website.

LUMI was recognized with the following honor:

• Readers’ Choice: Top Energy-Efficient HPC Achievement

The coveted annual HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards are determined through a nomination and voting process with the global HPCwire community, as well as selections from the HPCwire editors. The awards are an annual feature of the publication and constitute prestigious recognition from the HPC community. They are revealed each year to kick off the annual supercomputing conference, which showcases high performance computing, networking, storage, and data analysis.

– This year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of these renowned awards, and the 2023 Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards are exceptional, indeed, said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, publishers of HPCwire.

– Throughout the world there are pockets of brilliant scientists working on grand challenge problems that can only be explored and solved because of HPC. Rarely do these accomplishments come to light, much less are they recognized for their achievements and contribution to society. Between our worldwide readership of HPC experts and the most renowned panel of editors in the industry, the Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards represent resounding recognition of the many deep and varied HPC accomplishments throughout the world. Our sincerest gratitude and hearty congratulations go out to all of the winners.

– We are extremely proud about this award for the LUMI consortium. Energy-efficiency, cost-efficiency and a low carbon footprint are major targets in our operations towards a more sustainable world of computing. We are also enthusiastic about the dual impact we can make with LUMI to contribute to solve climate challenges: fully renewable energy with an extremely low carbon footprint and waste heat utilization complemented by the fact that LUMI is heavily used also in research aiming at solving the global climate challenges, said Kimmo Koski, Managing Director of CSC – IT Center for Science, Finland, on behalf of the LUMI consortium.
