TACC: Computing for the Endless Frontier

 

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) deployed a new system, Frontera, in 2019, with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, as the first phase of the new NSF "Towards a Leadership Class Computing Facility" program. At #5 in the world, Frontera is the fastest system at any university in the world.  This talk will provide a brief overview of the current landscape of advanced computing systems at TACC, how they are used, and how usage is changing, with a quick review of the new system and the broader project that surrounds it. We will also discuss current COVID-19 research projects, as well as the other services and programs that TACC provides, and recent research results supporting scientists across the USA.
