Cray replaces IBM on U. of Illinois supercomputer
Question of the Day
When IBM backed out in August, it cited technical and cost concerns about the project, but didn’t provide details. A $72 million building built just for the project, the National Petascale Computing Facility, was built on the university campus.
At the time, the NSF said there were no guarantees that the project would continue.
Now, Dunning said, 25 groups from around the world, including several from the university, have tentatively been given time on Blue Waters, with perhaps a dozen ready to go when the computer goes online.
“We’ll be holding (the projects) back trying to figure out how we schedule them on the machine,” Dunning said.
