Zoe Gorman writes that Yale’s fastest supercomputer ever will soon come online. With 704 nodes, the “Bulldog O” supercomputer will deliver somewhere in the neighborhood of 52.5 Tflops of performance.
Researchers are already lining up to use the system:
David Frioni, ITS’s manager of high performance computing said ITS has configured a “queueing system” based on a policy from the faculty committee. Researchers will send jobs to the supercomputer through an interface that can be run on their personal computers, and the queueing system determines which jobs Bulldog O will process when, according to the committee’s policy, he said.
