Within the framework of an equipment renovation program that is taking place at the High Performance Computing Center of the National University of Córdoba (CCAD-UNC, http://ccad.unc.edu.ar/), its administrators communicated at the beginning of August of this year, with Dr. H. Fabio Busnengo (IFIR researcher and member of the administrative commission of the high performance computing equipment of the CCT-Rosario). As a result of this contact, the CCAD gave a loan of an infiniband switch, accompanied by 22 network cards of this technology and the corresponding wires.

Within the framework of an equipment renovation program that is taking place at the High Performance Computing Center of the National University of Córdoba (CCAD-UNC, http://ccad.unc.edu.ar/), its administrators communicated at the beginning of August of this year, with Dr. H. Fabio Busnengo (IFIR researcher and member of the administrative commission of the high performance computing equipment of the CCT-Rosario). As a result of this contact, the CCAD gave a loan of an infiniband switch, accompanied by 22 network cards of this technology and the corresponding wires. This equipment for high performance computing will be incorporated into the high performance computing cluster (HPC) of the CCT-Rosario (http://cluster.rosario-conicet.gov.ar/) which since 2011 has been attached to the National Computer System of High Performance (SNCAD-MincyT) and as such, provides access for high performance scientific calculation purposes to researchers at the local level and from any S&T institution in the country. The equipment that will be incorporated into the CCT-Rosario cluster allows a data transfer speed 20 times greater than those of analog equipment existing to date and reduces the so-called latency time of communication between the different computers that make up the cluster. In this way, the entire team will be able to perform tasks called "in parallel" that add up to the processing capacity of several teams, thus being able to tackle more complex problems with a notable improvement in efficiency. The members of IFIR in particular, and the users of the CCT-Rosario cluster as a whole, wish to express our deep gratitude to CCAD-UNC and on their behalf to Dr. Oscar Reula (director of CCAD-UNC) and Dr. Nicolás Wolovick, for his remarkable gesture of selfless cooperation and inter-institutional solidarity.
