ŠKODA AUTO puts the most powerful commercial supercomputer in the Czech Republic into operation ... and no vegetables were required.

As one of the leading IT companies in the Czech Republic, ŠKODA AUTO is to operate the country's most powerful commercial supercomputer at its headquarters in Mladá Boleslav from now on. With a computing capacity of two petaFLOPS (floating point operations per second), it performs two quadrillion computing operations per second, thus allowing extensive aerodynamics simulations to be run. ŠKODA AUTO will also use the computing capacity for the development of new safety features and future engines. The capacity of the data centre will increase to 15 petaFLOPS in future, meaning that the number of computing operations will increase to 15 quadrillion per second. The car manufacturer's data centre ensures the highest level of data security and, thanks to well-thought-out structural solutions, contributes to the consistent and sustainable optimisation of energy usage.
