High Performance Computing

High Performance Computing

The Institute is planning a campus-wide high performance computing cluster.  We want to exploit economies of scale to create a large machine that users across campus can use instead of having to build their own closet-sized clusters.  The machine will be run by the Vice Provost advised by a faculty committee (Dan Meiron (chair), Maria Spiropulu, Tom Miller, Mark Simons, Mitch Guttman and Jonathan Katz), and administered by IMSS.   The Institute is providing some of the initial capital investment, but there is an option for faculty or groups of faculty to buy nodes on the machine. 

We will be holding two town hall meetings at the times and places above to present 1) Initial plans for configuration of the machine, and the time-line; 2) Proposed user fees; 3) Options for faculty/groups of faculty to buy nodes on the machine; and to seek your comments.

We will be sharing the same information in both meetings, so you can attend either.  You can also provide your feedback through any of the committee members.  Slides presented at the meeting are available for download by clicking here.
