Tulsa, Okla. - Just like tapping into a city's water or power supply, businesses will soon be able to tap into a community Supercomputer to help with their number-crunching.
"There's so many businesses that require very, very significant computer horsepower," said Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett. "Everything from energy and aviation to any type of engineering, any type of software development."
Mayor Bartlett says the Supercomputer should be a valuable tool to keep and recruit companies for Tulsa.
"All these types of companies will have access to this system, obviously for a small fee, but it will be relatively small," he said. "It will be a great economic hook to Tulsa."
The Supercomputer is being installed on the 2nd floor of Tulsa City Hall at One Technology Center.
The Supercomputer was paid for in part by a federal grant.
