Harvard Names New Lenovo HPC Cluster after Astronomer Annie Jump Cannon

Harvard has deployed a liquid-cooled supercomputer from Lenovo at it’s FASRC computing center. The system, named “Cannon” in honor of astronomer Annie Jump Cannon, is a large-scale HPC cluster supporting scientific modeling and simulation for thousands of Harvard researchers. “This new cluster will have 30,000 cores of Intel 8268 “Cascade Lake” processors. Each node will have 48 cores and 192 GB of RAM.”

Video: OpenHPC Introduction

Adrian Reber from Red Hat gave this talk at DefConf 2018. “Software provisioning is a common task repeated at many high performance computing sites to provide the local users with scientific applications and libraries. As the effort to compile HPC software is known to be duplicated by many HPC sites, the idea to collaborate in a community led to the creation of the OpenHPC project. In this talk I want to provide an introduction to OpenHPC, its community efforts and how it can help HPC sites.”
