XSEDE Panel Highlights Diversity of NSF Computing Resources

Jul 31, 2015 |

A plenary panel at the XSEDE15 conference, which took place this week in St. Louis, Mo., highlighted the broad spectrum of computing resources provided by the National Science Foundation, including several new and testbed projects and an effort to help more people use cyberinfrastructure to advance their research. “I don’t think there has been a Read more…

Wrangler and Comet Reflect Changing NSF Priorities

May 4, 2015 |

“Early operations mode” describes the status of two NSF-funded systems that are on track to support a wider range of user than is traditionally served by elite-level supercomputing. Wrangler is the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) system that we reported on last week, so now we turn our attention to Comet, the petascale supercomputer readying for launch at San Diego Read more…

Why TACC’s New Data ‘Wrangler’ Is a Big Deal

Apr 30, 2015 |

While there’s been a lot of activity around the coming crop of “exascale-relevant” supercomputers, the HPC landscape is also shifting to become more data-aware. Perhaps no system reflects this transition better than Wrangler, the I/O-optimized open science system from Dell and EMC that debuted earlier this month at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). In a presentation Read more…

TACC’s New Director Shares Strategy, System Futures

Jul 3, 2014 |

Each of the national labs and supercomputing sites have defining characteristics or “personalities” that are most often driven by the user communities that exploit their computational resources. Certain centers are affiliated with particular missions or needs. Some tend to prefer architectures that maximize overall performance and size in a way that tops the Top 500 Read more…
