Intel 'Knights Landing' Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors up and running.
TPAC recently launched 4 compute nodes with the new Intel Phi Processor, code name ‘Knights Landing’ (KNL). This gives local researchers the ability to use 256 cores of the new architecture. Intel Xeon Phi KNL processors feature the second generation of Intel’s Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture. Each processor features integrated on-package memory for higher memory …
Cloud Starter Workshops
Cloud Computing is fast becoming the most effective way for researchers to use “commodity” computing and storage resources for their eResearch needs. The NeCTAR Research Cloud (built on OpenStack) delivers these resources freely to researchers throughout Australia. This environment allows research to grow and expand beyond desktop and local infrastructure, enabling truly global research collaboration, expandable …
TPAC makes research easier with desktop in the cloud.
Researchers are often time-poor, and TPAC understands how important it is to offer services to researchers that are familiar, have been pre-configured with research tools and are quick to deploy. With this is mind TPAC have created a number of cloud based Virtual Machines (VM’s) that run within the National Research Cloud (NeCTAR). By using the …
The Marine Virtual Laboratory (MARVL).
One of the many services that TPAC offers to research community is MARVL, The Marine Virtual Laboratory. The following is a brief Introduction to MARVL, how it can be accessed, and what you can do with it. You can also find out more about MARVL at www.marvl.org.au
New $8.75 million research resource launched
Tasmania continues a 20-year tradition at the crest of the nation’s research computing capacity with the launch today of the Tasmanian eResearch Cloud. The cloud will store important scientific data collections and also allow researchers to access enormous computing power from a standard desktop PC. The $8.75 million project is the result of a collaboration …
TPAC Supports Weather@Home Project
Any Australian with a home computer and an internet connection can now power up a climate model and help scientists find the causes of record high temperatures and drought that hit Australia and New Zealand in 2013. The online climate experiment, Weather@Home has been created by a group of scientists from the University of Melbourne, …
