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

Joao Albuquerque NeSI Case Study University of Auckland

New Zealand 2100: The future through high-resolution wave modelling

"I’m lucky to have access to a cluster like NeSI’s. Without it, I’d be running this model for years, rather than about a month.”
NeSI Case Study Alexis Marshal University of Waikato

Parallel processing for ocean life

"We contacted NeSI because we were going from trying to assemble 100,000 individual 150 nucleotide base sequences, to trying to assemble 1.4 billion. We were having computational issues with memory, but also time."
NeSI Case Study Jon Tunnicliffe University of Auckland

NeSI support helps keep NZ rivers healthy

"It’s been helpful to have routines optimised through NeSI assistance... it’s easier for students and researchers to put their data into the model, experiment with the governing parameters, and then observe what comes out of it."
NeSI Case Study Kannan Ridings University of Auckland nanowires

Heating up nanowires with HPC

"Without modern HPC servers, a lot of research today in nanotechnology, physics and science in general just wouldn’t be possible."
Kendall Clements NeSI Case Study Endeavour Fund

Making waves in global food production technology

“The molecular work associated with this research generates huge amounts of data, and NeSI’s resources provide critical computing infrastructure.”
LFRic UK Met Office Case Study

The development of next generation weather and climate models is heating up

The LFRic development effort involves international partners from New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Korea, and India.
Oliver Stevenson case study

Modelling the careers of cricket players

“Using NeSI allows us to analyse a larger number of players, in a shorter space of time.”
NeSI Case Study Victor Canela University of Auckland

Understanding the behaviours of light

"It’s a new landscape we can explore with these techniques."
NeSI Case Study Erik Behrens Jonny Williams NIWA

Getting closer to more accurate climate predictions for New Zealand

"Researchers will be using this model for ground-breaking research."
NeSI Case Study Ann McCartney Genomics Aotearoa Hero Image

How Genomics Aotearoa and NeSI tackled a big problem (and won)

"Honestly, I have worked on a lot of clusters and I have never had the type of user support that NeSI supply."
