Cirrus is an SGI ICE XA supercomputer comprising more than 2,000 cores – the equivalent of thousands of desktop computers. This facilitates calculations that would be impossible, or much slower, when carried out on conventional desktop computing systems, delivering results in hours to days instead of weeks to months.
