I'm attempting to capture the fun and crazy world of High Performance Computing in an academic setting. I intend to post various bits and pieces that I happen to stumble across in my travels through modern HPC, GPGPU systems and the complete and utter bane of my existence - 'enterprise' storage arrays.
We are primarily a large scale UNIX shop with a focus on trying to help our scientists and faculty get their work and research done without us or, more importantly the computer systems getting in the way. More often than not the majority of the systems we end up putting together are somewhat erm... 'creative' to say the very least!
It ought to be fun!
