Intel® Architecture Deployment at Texas Tech University Relies on Intel® HPC Orchestrator

When it came time to perform a substantial upgrade of the TTU IT Division’s High Performance Computing Center at Texas Tech University, the challenge was to easily manage such a large expansion, which would effectively double the center’s parallel computing capacity. Since the existing 10,000+ core system includes several equipment generations, as well as the latest technology from Intel, HPCC staff at TTU chose Intel® HPC Orchestrator for the task. In this article, Alan Sill, Senior Director of the TTU HPCC, explains why.
