NeSI provides a range of services, people, expertise, and information to help computational research projects become reality

NeSI Case Study Consultancy Ting Wang Amina Shahzadi University of Otago

Using statistical models to help New Zealand prepare for large earthquakes

"The help that we received from this NeSI consultancy project was crucial to our research project."
NeSI Case Study Stephen Stuart NIWA

Improving researchers' ability to access and analyse climate model data sets

"NeSI has helped us efficiently build a large repository of climate model data from research institutes around the world, which we can now share and analyse in a local supercomputing environment. "

Speeding up the post-processing of a climate model data pipeline

"Before NeSI helped with this project, I was facing cases where I could not compute all the diagnostics required in a realistic time frame and therefore this consultancy has made possible what was simply impossible before."

Solving mapping problems over NZ’s Wairarapa region

"They’ll fire it off to Mahuika and we’ll have a result back the next morning. In the past, this could have taken us a week or more."

Overcoming data processing overload in scientific web mapping software

"To create the map caches for one of our tools would take about a month of continuous processing."
NeSI HPC platform

Empowering students with internationally competitive HPC skills

"With HPC and molecular dynamics software, it’s a lot faster and more user-friendly, both factors that will continue to be more valuable to labs in the future."

Visualising ripple effects in riverbed sediment transport

“NeSI staff provided critical help at a critical time."
NeSI Case Study Anna Garden University of Otago

Understanding the structure of gold and platinum nanoclusters

"These calculations create a large number of files; NeSI was able to store these files and help us navigate them."
NeSI Case Study Joseph Lane University of Waikato

Preparing students for 21st Century research

“I think that was quite helpful for students in that they were learning transferable skills that weren’t just around HPC and the data space, but were skills they could offer a PhD group."
NeSI Case Study Celine Cattoen Gilbert NIWA river forecast

New Zealand’s first national river flow forecasting system for flooding resilience

"Without NeSI’s input, we would have been much more limited. We wouldn’t have been able to develop a national-scale system running in real-time."
