Lessons Learned from the CHPC Student Cluster Competition

chpcIn this video from the 2015 CHPC National Meeting in South Africa, participants in the Student Cluster Competition discuss what they learned in their race to build the fastest HPC cluster.

“The students received a unique opportunity to learn, experience and demonstrate how high-performance computing influence our world and day-to-day learning. As an integral part of the CHPC National Meeting, the Student Cluster Competition is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the high performance computing world and community.”

As winners of the CHPC competition, Team Wits 1 will travel to Frankfurt in June for the ISC 2015 Student Cluster Competition.

“In a real-time challenge, 11 teams of six undergraduate and/or high school students will build a small cluster of their own design on the ISC exhibit floor and race to demonstrate the greatest performance across a series of benchmarks and applications. The students will have a unique opportunity to learn, experience and demonstrate how high-performance computing influence our world and day-to-day learning. Held in collaboration of the HPC Advisory Council and ISC High Performance organizers, the Student Cluster Competition is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the high performance computing world and community.”
