High Performance Computing in Cranfield University
|Date||Wednesday 21 Mar 2018|
18:45 for 19:00 - 20:30
|Speaker||Dr Michael Knaggs, Research Computing Manager, Cranfield University|
Cranfield University is transitioning to a new set of High Performance Computing assets as part of the update to the Research Computing Service capabilities. A new system "Delta" is commissioned for research users with 118 compute nodes and 120TB shared storage. Previous systems were re-configured as "Crescent" to support teaching, with a mix of 89 different computing nodes and a mix of storage nodes. This highly flexible resource supports work on a diverse range of applications in Engineering, Bioinformatics, Molecular Simulation, Machine Learning, Data Analysis and Software Development.
Dr Michael Knaggs, the Research Computing Manager, is to present on both these systems and conduct a tour of the facilities. Other Cranfield colleagues shall showcase some of the research work using the computing facilities.
The meeting shall be of interest to the general computing, engineering and scientific community, without specialist knowledge in High Performance Computing.
