In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team goes over the results of the SC17 Student Cluster Competition.

This year, Nanyang Technological University from Singapore took the Top Prize, setting a new record of 51.77 Teraflops on Linpack.

Team Nanyang took the top spot at the SC17 Student Cluster Competition

“The Student Cluster Competition was developed in 2007 to immerse undergraduate and high school students in high performance computing. Student teams design and build small clusters, with hardware and software vendor partners, learn designated scientific applications, apply optimization techniques for their chosen architectures, and compete in a non-stop, 48-hour challenge, at the SC conference, to complete a real-world scientific workload, while impressing conference attendees and interview judges with their HPC knowledge.”

In this video, Dan Olds from OrionX interviews Team Nanyang, this year’s champions of the SC17 Student Cluster Competition.

Student Cluster Competition participants are really all winners–they can look forward to exciting careers in HPC!

After that, we do our Catch of the Week:
