 K computer
The K computer, which was jointly developed by RIKEN and Fujitsu, is part of the High-Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) initiative led by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The K computer's availability for shared use began in 2012. The "K" in K computer comes from the Japanese Kanji character "Kei," which means ten peta or 10 to the 16th power. In its original sense, "Kei" stood for a large gateway, and this meaning reflected the hope that the system would be a new gateway to computational science.
