"Drs. Jay Boisseau, Karl Schulz, and Omar Ghattas will describe the Ranger system in detail, present initial results, and discuss how Ranger and the project team will enable unprecedented computational research that advances science and society.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Ranger is a collaboration among TACC, The University of Texas at Austin’s Institute for Computational and Engineering Sciences (ICES), Sun Microsystems, Advanced Micro Devices, Arizona State University and Cornell University.
Importantly, 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.
Join us for an engaging discussion on the importance and value of advanced computing technologies, in particular, this first-of-its-kind system. "
