Georgia Tech Wins NSF Award for Next-Gen Supercomputing.

Georgia Institute of Technology (10/21/09) Wilson, Stefany

Georgia Tech has received a five-year, $12 million award from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure to develop and deploy a high-performance computing (HPC) system. Georgia Tech will lead a partnership of academic, industry, and government experts in the creation of two heterogeneous HPC systems that will expand the range of research projects scientists and engineers can undertake. The project will unite experts and resources from Georgia Tech’s College of Computing, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the University of Tennessee, the National Institute for Computational Sciences, Hewlett-Packard, and NVIDIA. “Our goal is to develop and deploy a novel, next-generation system for the computational science community that demonstrates unprecedented performance on computational science and data-intensive applications, while also addressing the new challenges of energy efficiency,” says Georgia Tech professor Jeffrey Vetter. The project will be developed and deployed in two phases. An initial system delivery is planned for deployment in early 2010, with innovations in performance and power being achieved through heterogeneous processing based on graphics processing units.
