Post Apply for Access to the Flash-Powered Gordon Supercomputer

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) is seeking innovative applications for the next round of user allocations on its data-intensive Gordon supercomputer, which went into operation earlier this year.
Gordon is already assisting the research community in a wide range of data-intensive projects, many of which could not be addressed previously because scientists simply didn't have the computer capability to do so,' said SDSC Director Michael Norman, principal investigator for the Gordon project. 'We are looking to attract researchers who have innovative larger-scale research projects that will utilize Gordon's unique capabilities.'

Gordon contains 300 terabytes of flash-based storage, similar to that found in smaller devices such as cellphones and laptops, but with greater performance and durability. Gordon also deploys large memory 'supernodes' based on ScaleMP's vSMP Foundation software. The standard supernode has approximately 1 TB of DRAM, but larger memory configurations can be deployed as needed. These features make Gordon an ideal platform for tackling data-intensive problems.
