A recent ICT News article graphs how researchers have jumped on the newly expanded cluster, Plato, to speed up their computing turnaround time.
I’m pleased to announce that the advanced computing Infrastructure offered by ICT for research, teaching, and training, has been expanded. ICT has added a large memory server named Meton.usask.ca (after Meton of Athens, continuing the Greek philosopher theme for these research resources) for researcher and teaching use.
ICT has recently added a 512-core HPC Linux compute cluster, Plato.usask.ca, to the High Performance Computing resources on campus. Plato is specifically targeted for research use. It is designed to complement the HPC resources available in Compute Canada/WestGrid, and those provided by the ICT cloud service.
