In this video, NCAR’s Henry Tufo presents: Janus: A Co-Designed Facility and Supercomputer. The presentation was recorded as part of the Dell Panel on Power & Cooling at the HPC User Forum in San Diego on Sept. 8, 2011.

The Janus supercomputer at the University of Colorado, Boulder is one of the largest container-based supercomputers in the world with 342 Dell c6100 servers and an estimated peak performance of 184 Teraflops. Faced with extreme time constraints, Tufo’s team leveraged rapid deployment technologies in use by industry to design, build, and test off-site a fully-customized pre- fabricated data center.
