XSEDE, PSC Resource to be Available in 2016

Oct. 7 — Bridges, available starting in 2016 at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, represents a new concept in high-performance computing: a system designed to support familiar, convenient software and environments for both traditional and non-traditional HPC users. It is a richly-connected set of interacting systems offering a flexible mix of gateways (web portals), workflows, Hadoop and Spark ecosystems, interactivity, and batch processing. Bridges will include: Compute nodes with hardware-supported shared memory ranging from 128GB to 12TB per node to support genomics, machine learning, graph analytics, and other fields where partitioning data is impractical GPU nodes to accelerate diverse applications, for example, in machine learning, image processing, and materials science Database nodes to support data management, analytics, integration, and fusion and to drive gateways and workflows Webserver nodes to host gateways…
