“High Performance Computing is fundamental to science and society, allowing scientists and researchers to push the boundaries of human knowledge and tackle the biggest challenges we face today. HPC matters because these challenges affect each and every one of us from where we live, to how we lead healthier lives, to how we protect people in the face of violent weather, changing climate, and unpredictable seismic activity. HPC matters because people matter. At the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin, we build and deploy powerful HPC systems in support of open science, powering discoveries that change the world.”
