Video: Beowulf Boot Camp Trains the Next Generation of HPC Experts

“This exciting course offers students and teachers a unique opportunity to work with advanced research technology not usually available in a typical classroom setting. Students will engage in the following activities: building a computer cluster from scratch; installing the Linux operating system on the computer they’ve built; connecting computers put together by their peers to make a mini-supercomputer; learning how to program a mini-supercomputer in parallel with Python; interactive activities to help understand how Parallel computing works in Supercomputing; running performance benchmarks to determine how your cluster ranks in comparison with the fastest and largest supercomputers in the world.”

Climate Researchers Collaborate with HPC

“The complexity and scale of weather and climate simulation have led weather centers and research groups to turn to their own community, either through direct collaboration or open source software initiatives, to increase performance and usability of these hugely complex models.”
