SDSC to Double ‘Comet’ Supercomputer’s Graphic Processor Count

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego has been granted a supplemental award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to double the number of graphic processing units, or GPUs, on its petascale-level Comet supercomputer in direct response to growing demand for GPU computing across a wide range of research domains. Under the supplemental NSF...

Digital Rock Helps Scientists understand Porous DNA

As with many fields, computing is changing how geologists conduct their research. One example: the emergence of digital rock physics, where tiny fragments of rock are scanned at high resolution, their 3-D structures are reconstructed, and this data is used as the basis for virtual simulations and experiments. Digital rock physics complements the laboratory and field work that geologists,...

SDSC’s ‘Comet’ Supercomputer Surpasses ‘10,000 Users’ Milestone

Comet, the petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), an Organized Research Unit of UC San Diego, has easily surpassed its target of serving at least 10,000 researchers across a diverse range of science disciplines, from astrophysics to redrawing the “tree of life”. In fact, about 15,000 users have used Comet to run science gateways jobs alone since the system went...
