HPCC Celebrates 10th Anniversary
The High Performance Computing Center (HPCC), within the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (iCER), is celebrating its 10th anniversary. In 2005, the HPCC was formed via a grassroots effort by a coterie of faculty at MSU with a strong interest in computational sciences. The HPCC facility was established to solidify the existence of high performance computing (HPC) at MSU and led to the formation of iCER in 2009. The HPCC has grown steadily in size, compute power, and staff. The accomplished and skilled support group works tirelessly behind the scenes maintaining and updating our hardware palette.
In 2015, the HPCC will begin plans to acquire a new machine that will singularly increase our available compute power at MSU. With MSU’s continuing commitment to iCER, the HPCC, the creation of a new department focused on the computational sciences, and a new Datacenter on the horizon, the future of HPC at MSU is bright.
Watch the HPCC journey to hear from HPCC users, iCER staff, and President Simon as they reflect on the past 10 years and look forward to the future of HPC at MSU.
