Quite a few folks from the Microsoft HPC team will be heading down to Portland next week to attend the 2009 super computing conference.  I will be distributing a new version of the memory stick containing  reference materials.  (download in one zip)

Feel free to find me and get a copy at the Microsoft Booth.

This year Microsoft and IBM are sponsoring ASU students (the cluster devils team) going to the sc09 cluster challenge.  This year’s challenge includes running:

1. CHOMBO 2. WRF (binary here).  3. HPCC  4. VisIt  5. NWCHEM   These codes cover finite element/structure, weather simulation, benchmarking, visualization of data output, and computational chemistry.  The students will be measured on performance/power consumption, efficiency, when running these codes.  I wish them the best of luck!
