Print Friendly, PDF & Email

sp4In this video, engineers move the NERSC Edison Supercomputer from Oakland to Berkeley. The one week long move is condensed into :41 seconds in this time lapse video, shot during the entire process. Edison is a Cray XC30, with a peak performance of 2.57 petaflops/sec, 133,824 compute cores, 357 terabytes of memory, and 7.56 petabytes of disk.

“The relocation process began in Fall 2015, with plans to move Edison from the Oakland Scientific Facility (OSF) in downtown Oakland to a brand new building: the Computational Research and Theory (CRT) facility, located on the main Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory campus.”
