TIANJIN -- China's leading computing technology firm, Dawning Information Industry Co Ltd (Sugon), is exporting computing services to Russia with the launch of its overseas information service program.

Han Meijun, deputy manager of Sugon's overseas business section, said on Monday that under the "Seed Program," Sugon has provided high-performance computing services for Russian government organs and firms.

"Russian governments such as the municipal government of Moscow, the financial sector, including the Moscow Exchange and Finam, telecom operator Megafon, and aircraft maker Sukhoi have started cooperating with Sugon for high-performance computing services, information technology innovation and personnel training," said Han.

In addition to the service, Sugon has received an order from Megafon for computing hardware products.

Han said Sugon hopes to spread the computing service to Russia and other BRICS countries, as its applications can help advanced manufacturing and service markets.

Backed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Sugon is the developer of the supercomputer Nebulae or Dawning 6000, which ranked second on the TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers in 2010.

The company is also a major developer of the world's largest radio telescope in southwest China's Guizhou province, which requires a strong computing system to support massive data storage and processing.

Han said Sugon has been promoting internationalization. It has been involved in a number of projects in data center construction, smart city building and information services in countries such as Slovenia, Laos and Ethiopia.
