In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference, Karl Schulz from the Texas Advanced Computing Center presents: Experiences from the Deployment of TACC’s Stampede System.
Stampede is one of the largest computing systems in the world for open science research. Stampede system components are connected via a fat-tree, FDR InfiniBand interconnect. One hundred and sixty compute racks house compute nodes with dual, eight-core sockets, and feature the new Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Additional racks house login, I/O, big-memory, and general hardware management nodes. Each compute node is provisioned with local storage. A high-speed Lustre file system is backed by 76 I/O servers.
