Why Purdue Has Been with Student Cluster Competitions from the Start

Gerry

In this video, Purdue’s Dr. Gerry McCartney talks with Dan Olds about the University’s participation in the Student Cluster Competitions. “We want to make this commitment to our students. They enjoy it. We enjoy having them represent us. The departments feel good about it, and we get a little help from the vendors as well. Between all of those contributions, this turns out to be a great experience for us.”

In this video from ISC 2015, Bill Nitzberg from Altair describes why PBS Professional 13.0 is the biggest release yet for the company. “The industry needs to accomplish a lot in the coming years to deliver a working, useful exascale machine. PBS Pro is only one piece of the puzzle… but it’s an important piece. Job scheduling and workload management are core capabilities – a “must have” for every HPC system – ensuring HPC goals are met by enforcing site-specific use policies, enabling users to focus on science and engineering rather than IT, and optimizing utilization (of hardware, licenses, and power) to minimize waste.”
