SC is the International Conference for
 High Performnance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 13-19, 2010

Running a Lean and Productive HPC Center

SESSION: Running a Lean and Productive HPC Center

EVENT TYPE: Workshop

TIME: 9:00AM - 12:30PM

Organizer(s):William F. Tschudi, Michael K. Patterson


Attendees will learn about ways to improve the procurement, operation, and energy efficiency of high performance computing equipment and the facilities that support it. This workshop will draw upon material developed by DOE's Industrial Technology Program and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and other materials developed by HPC and energy efficiency experts. This workshop will provide an introduction to assessment tools, environmental recommendations, best practices, and ideas for future procurements and future efficiency improvements in HPC power and cooling systems. The workshop will look holistically at efficiency opportunities by considering computing equipment and the facility as an integrated computing platform. It will provide an introduction to DOE's free DC Pro Tool Suite which can be useful in performing energy assessments on existing HPC facilities, identifying efficiency opportunities, and tracking improvements.
