In pursuit of its goal, the HPC group:

  • Maintains several HPC platforms:

    • Mio – Machine managed unde the condo paradigm (150+ Tflops)

    • Wendian – Mines’ newest machine with 87 nodes, 5 with GPUS (350+ Tflops)

  • Monitors the platforms for potential issues

  • Installs user software on the HPC platforms

  • Installs common libraries and community codes

  • Maintains documentation

  • Offers consulting services to enable more effective research

  • Offers workshops covering HPC topics

  • Provides help porting and optimizing applications

  • Provides recommendations for more effective use HPC platforms

  • Represents the Mines community at HPC related conferences

  • Provies consultations for advanced research computing workflows, parallel computing and more
