Are your research computing demands overwhelming your computer? Symptoms may include deafening fan noise, overheating, and system slugishness while your code runs in the background. If so, Swarthmore ITS has you covered with high performance computing resources and training. Strelka … Continue reading Need power? Here is what’s going on with supercomputing this summer.
Strelka, Swarthmore’s new computer cluster, is up and running and ready to run computationally-intensive jobs. The cluster consists of 7 nodes, each with two 20-core CPUs with an additional head node to handle user logins and job scheduling. 3 mid-memory … Continue reading Strelka Has Landed at Swarthmore
Swarthmore College will be hosting a conference on “High Performance Computing in the Liberal Arts” on January 7-8, 2020. Aimed at IT staff at liberal arts colleges, the event will bring together over 30 technologists from 25 colleges from across … Continue reading High Performance Computing Conference at Swarthmore – January 2020
This week, I attended Supercomputing 2019, a huge conference dedicated to high performance computing, and learned about the latest advances in research computing hardware and software. The timing was perfect because Swarthmore just purchased a large cluster computer that will … Continue reading High Performance Computer coming to Swarthmore in December 2019
As more and more Swarthmore researchers create sophisticated computer programs for simulation and analysis, it can become harder to manage the code. Getting a new computer configured with the proper environment can be difficult and the challenges are multiplied … Continue reading Accelerate your Research Using Software Containers
Oklahoma University will be offering a series of free online workshops called “Supercomputing In Plain English.” The workshops will be help on Tuesdays at 3PM starting on January 25, 2010. You can follow along with the presenter using a variety of videoconferencing options along with lecture slides and the opportunity to submit questions via e-mail or phone. See the web site for the workshop or get in touch with Andrew Ruether from ITS (aruethe2, x8254) for more information. If you are planning to participate, drop Andrew an e-mail. If we have enough interest we will set up a dedicated videoconference space. … Continue reading Supercomputing in Plain English: Online Workshop
