A Retrospective Look at the Stampede Supercomputer - The Technology
Summary: In 2017, the Stampede supercomputer, funded by the National Science Foundation, completed its five-year mission to provide world-class computational resources and support staff to more than 11,000 U.S. users on over 3,000 projects in the open science community. But what made it special? Stampede was like a bridge that moved thousands of researchers off of soon-to-be decommissioned supercomputers, while at the same time building a framework that anticipated the eminent trends that came to dominate advanced computing. Podcast host Jorge Salazar interviews Dan Stanzione, Executive Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center; Bill Barth, Director of High Performance Computing and a Research Scientist at the Texas Advanced Computing Center; and Tommy Minyard, Director of Advanced Computing Systems at the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
