In this podcast, UT Chancellor William McCraven discusses what makes TACC successful as a leading supercomputing center.
“I think what is important to remember about the supercomputers that are here is that behind them all are people. And it really is about the people here at TACC and the people here on the JJ Pickle Research Campus and the University of Texas at Austin. It’s great to have these incredible servers and incredible processors, but if you don’t have the people to run them – if you don’t have the people that are passionate about supercomputing, we would never get there from here.“Behind all of this magnificent technology are the fantastic faculty, researchers, interns, our corporate partners that are part of this, the National Science Foundation, there are people behind all of the success of the TACC. I think that’s the point we can never forget.”
