NCSA Aids Researchers with AI on Multiple Fronts

NCSA is the caretaker and manager of the Delta supercomputer, but that means more than just making sure the machine is running. The Center recently worked with the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) on their research using AI to identify materials capable of passively capturing carbon. Delta’s powerful AI capabilities were used in this collaborative effort, which also […]

NCSA’s Delta Supercomputer to be Allocable by XSEDE this Summer

Delta, a $10 million National Science Foundation-funded advanced computing system housed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, will soon be accessible to researchers across the country via XSEDE allocation. Using a design that leverages graphics processing units (GPUs) in combination with CPU architectures well-suited for scientific computing, Delta will be particularly suited to […]

NCSA’s Upcoming $10M Delta System to Expand Use of GPUs in Scientific Workloads

Delta, a new supercomputer to be deployed before the end of 2021 at the National Center for Supercomputing Application’s (NCSA), has as part of its mission the expanded adoption of GPU-accelerated scientific computing. NCSA  Director Bill Gropp told us that that while NCSA is not new to GPUs (some years ago, staffers there configured a […]

LSU Deploys IBM Power8 Delta Supercomputer

Today LSU announced the deployment of a POWER8-based supercomputer to advance big data research in Louisiana. Named Delta, the new supercomputer’s unique design brings a new way of conducting computational research to LSU. The supercomputer will be housed at the LSU Center for Computation & Technology, or CCT.
