Print Friendly, PDF & Email

NCSA has published a video tour of the facility that will be home to Blue Waters (the future IBM petascale system), hosted by Senior Associate Director John Melchi. The facility is mammoth (bigger than a football field, with 30,000 sq ft of 6 foot high raised floor). Check it out here.

In an upcoming episode of the Green HPC podcast series I interview Bill Kramer about Blue Waters and the steps that NCSA is taking to be proactive in manging — and reducing — energy use by that machine.
