Dr. Eng Lim Goh on HPE’s Spaceborne Supercomputer

In this video from SC17 in Denver, Dr. Eng Lim Goh describes the spaceborne supercomputer that HPE built for NASA. “The research objectives of the Spaceborne Computer include a year-long experiment of operating high performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer systems on the ISS with its changing radiation climate. During high radiation events, the electrical power consumption and, therefore, the operating speeds of the computer systems are lowered in an attempt to determine if such systems can still operate correctly.”

Podcast: HPE Sends a Supercomputer into Orbit

In this TechNative Podcast, Mark Fernandez from HPE describes the company’s collaboration with NASA to send a supercomputer into orbit. ““By NASA’s rules, not just any computer can go into space. Their components must be radiation hardened, especially the CPUs,” reports HPE Insights. “Otherwise, they tend to fail due to the effects of ionizing radiation.”
