Not Your Average Texas Ranger: Visit to Supercomputer Lab

April 10, 2008 11:00am - 12:00pm

We leave for the J.J. Pickle Research Campus for an 11:30 visit to Ranger, the most powerful supercomputing system in the world for open science research. This first-of-its-kind system entered full production on Feb. 4. Ranger’s deployment marks the beginning of the Petascale Era in high-performance computing (HPC) where systems will approach a thousand trillion floating point operations per second and manage a thousand trillion bytes of data
