@jjg What are we looking at?
@Ricardus trying a different chassis for my little supercomputer :)
@jjg Looks good. What's under the hood?
@Ricardus 8 nodes, 32 ARM 64 cores.
Lots more detail on my blog but this is a good summary:
@jjg What sort of stuff are you doing with it?
@Ricardus the short answer is that it’s a development platform for making high-performance computing more accessible.
@jjg Well, sure. But are you doing atmospheric modeling, or are you running SETI segments? 🙂
@Ricardus Right now the most common thing I'm running is HPL benchmarks to tune the system :)
I've run a few BOINC jobs as well as some n-body simulations and such just to play around, and I'm super-excited to put it to work on more stuff like that, but I'm trying to maintain *some* self-discipline and focus on completing the hardware/os work before diving too deep into fun existing/new applications :)
