PEARC20 Plenary Introduces Five Upcoming NSF-Funded HPC Systems Including SGCI Collaboration Delta
Five new HPC systems—three National Science Foundation-funded “Capacity” systems and two “Innovative Prototype/Testbed” systems—will be coming online through the end of 2021.
One of the systems, the Category I Delta system, will have more than 800 late-model Nvidia GPUs. The $10-million resource will be the largest GPU system by FLOPS in NSF’s portfolio at launch.
Among other things, Delta will feature a rich variety of interfaces, from command-line to science gateways, partnering with the Science Gateways Community Institute to develop practices for blending interactive and batch computing with visualization
