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!
