RMACC Improvements

Academic Year 2017-2018

Over the past year, several improvements were made to the RMACC Summit supercomputer, including:  

  • New, faculty contributed, nodes featuring Intel Skylake processors.
  • Support for XSEDE accounts, which provides access to regional and other non-CU researchers.

RMACC Summit remains a popular and successful HPC deployment with over 90% average utilization.

Remote Visualization

Academic Year 2017-2018

To enable researchers to work remotely, EnginFram provides that ability. Coupled with the proprietary Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) VNC server, EnginFrame supports the use of common visualization applications in a typical desktop environment using only a modern web browser.


Academic Year 2017-2018

Another web service researchers utilize is Jupyterhub, a notebook interface to computational resources, allowing users to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and explanatory text.
