Purdue's new research supercomputer focus of faculty luncheon

February 27, 2015  12:00pm – 1:30pm
LWSN, Room 1142

Tailored for research needing big memory and high throughput, in addition to the usual high-performance parallel computation, Purdue’s latest research supercomputer offers faculty and campus units more than a one-size-fits-all resource, but it still has all the advantages of the successful Community Cluster Program.

Purdue researchers can find out more about the new cluster, to be built by ITaP Research Computing this spring, at a faculty luncheon set for noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, in the Lawson Computer Science Building, Room 1142.

The luncheon also is an opportunity to provide input on the new cluster. Researchers can email rcac-help@purdue.edu with questions or advice as well.

The new cluster will run on the same shared, community model that has given Purdue the best supercomputing infrastructure in the nation for use by researchers on a single campus. But subdividing it to address specific computational demands of different types of research will better serve more users.

For more information, contact Preston Smith, director of research services and support, psmith@purdue.edu or 49-49729.
