Podcast: A Retrospective on Great Science and the Stampede Supercomputer

TACC will soon deploy Phase 2 of the Stampede II supercomputer. In this podcast, they celebrate by looking back on some of the great science computed on the original Stampede machine. “In 2017, the Stampede supercomputer, funded by the NSF, completed its five-year mission to provide world-class computational resources and support staff to more than 11,000 U.S. users on over 3,000 projects in the open science community. But what made it special? Stampede was like a bridge that moved thousands of researchers off of soon-to-be decommissioned supercomputers, while at the same time building a framework that anticipated the eminent trends that came to dominate advanced computing.”

Video: Stampede II Supercomputer to Advance Computational Science at TACC

In this video, Dan Stanzione from TACC describes how the Stampede II supercomputer will driving computational science. “Announced in June, a $30 million NSF award to the Texas Advanced Computing Center will be used acquire and deploy a new large scale supercomputing system, Stampede II, as a strategic national resource to provide high-performance computing capabilities for thousands of researchers across the U.S. This award builds on technology and expertise from the Stampede system first funded in by NSF 2011 and will deliver a peak performance of up to 18 Petaflops, over twice the overall system performance of the current Stampede system.”
