Building an Exotic HPC Ecosystem at The University of Tulsa
MetadataShow full item record
This talk covers the in-progress journey of the Tandy School of Computer Science at The University of Tulsa to build a unique high performance computing (HPC) ecosystem for researchers and students. The presenters motivate and describe the launch of TU's initial HPC point of presence — a traditional CPU cluster — along with lessons learned from that process. They also discuss ongoing work to stand up two distinct heterogeneous compute node clusters and the challenging research problems they will be used to address. Objectives and developments in leveraging these HPC resources in the classroom will be presented. In addition to passing along some wisdom picked up along the way, the presenters will reveal their plans for the future of TU's evolving HPC ecosystem.
