SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Surpasses 10,000-User Milestone


The petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), Comet, has surpassed its target of serving at least 10,000 researchers from a wide range of science disciplines. Comet’s success is due, in large part, to science gateways jobs. Since Comet went into production less than two years ago, about 15,000 users have used it to run science gateways jobs. Learn more about Comet’s milestone, two popular gateways that are using Comet, and how SGCI’s work on accelerating the development and application of highly functional and sustainable science gateways relates to Comet.

SDSC will hold a webinar on February 15, 2017, to provide a detailed overview of Comet’s capabilities and system upgrades. First-time and current users are invited to attend. More information about the webinar can be found here.
