A National Science Foundation-funded project headed by Purdue University Professor Saurabh Bagchi is using Purdue’s new Rice cluster, Blue Waters at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and other supercomputers in research to find ways make such high-end systems more reliable. An article detailing the project posted at Purdue with a brief excerpt below. Read more…
At Purdue, installing cluster computers is a tradition that inspires teamwork. The university’s central computing organization, Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP), just built its eighth cluster in as many years – seven of these are TOP500-level machines – with help from more than 100 staff and volunteers. On Friday morning, the crew got to work unboxing and assembling Read more…
UCLA has added itself to list of institutions moving “outside the box” of brick and mortar solutions. The university recently selected HP’s POD containerized datacenter to meet the needs of an expanding research base for its shared HPC cluster program.
The National Science Foundation recognized the work of researchers shaping the future of high performance computing.
What if researchers could access and share scientific simulation and modeling tools as easily as YouTube videos with the power of the cloud to drive it all? That’s the underlying premise for the HUBzero Platform for Scientific Collaboration, a cyberinfrastructure developed at Purdue University.
Purdue group invents energy management device that prevents need for costly datacenter shutdowns; and Dell announces its intention to purchase 3PAR for 1.15 billion. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
While initial intent for the visit was to learn more about the HUBzero project, it naturally led to a series of questions that were related to the grid to cloud transition and how this is happening at similarly-sized universities who are not recognized as supercomputing superheroes.
