The Guatemalan researchers partnered with The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Advanced Computing Center to make the Archive available online. The Ranger supercomputer was used to create reference files for the first 10 million documents in just a few days. By speeding up the process, UT and the AHPN researchers were able to get the archive online in time for the Guatemalan elections."
