The Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (NAVMETOCCOM) operates the Navy DSRC, one of the five DoD supercomputer centers, on behalf of the DoD HPCMP
Challenges such as this are the driving force behind the latest DoD HPCMP
procurements for the MSRC.
To prove Linux cluster technology was capable of providing the reliability and power necessary for the HPCMP
, Linux Networx spent one year running rigorous benchmarks and tests at the Solutions Center, a state-of-the art testing and evaluation facility located at the Linux Networx headquarters in Salt Lake City.
Salt Lake City, Utah-based Linux Networx will supply a 2,132 processor-based Evolocity II cluster to the Army Research Laboratory's Major Shared Resource Center, although plans for five further HPCMP
cluster systems are in the works.
resources are used to provide military programs with a competitive advantage for the design, operation and sustainment of new weapons systems; for example, preparing U.
SAIC will also provide systems engineering and technical support for defining, planning, managing, and executing projects/programs to repair, modernize, improve, and acquire HPCMP
and Department of Defense Supercomputing Resource Center assets and capabilities.
Broersma was presented with the HPCMP
Hero Award on Jan.
supports DoD scientists and engineers by providing HPC systems, large-scale data storage and complementary technologies.
Contract Awarded to Provide program management and technical support necessary to advance the services, capabilities, infrastructure, and technologies in the HPCMP
This reportedly marks the third consecutive year that LSI technology has been included in the HPCMP
USJFCOM accomplished this effort with the help of the University of Southern California Information Science Institute, which played a major part in working with the HPCMP
to acquire the supercomputer.
The new system is part of the HPCMP
Technology Insertion 2006 (TI-06) program, an initiative to modernize the Department of Defense high performance computing (HPC) capabilities.
