Intel and Dell partnered with the Texas Advanced Computing Center and National Scientific Research Foundation (NSF) to the build the world's largest academic supercomputer. Scientific researchers are making breakthrough discoveries and creating unprecedented 3D models.
TACC and UCSD: Tackling COVID-19 with HPC
Leading the way in the race to find treatments for COVID-19 is the National Science Foundation-funded Frontera supercomputer.
Christine Goulet, Executive Director for Applied Sciences (SCEC) at the University of Southern California (USC) improve how researchers simulate earthquakes using TACC’s Frontera supercomputer that will improve building codes and public safety.
Prof Clint Dawson, Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, University of Texas at Austin, uses the Frontera supercomputer to model the impacts of hurricane storm surges on coastline communities.
The mission of the National Scientific Foundation (NSF) is always to push forward the frontiers of science and engineering research. As the only leadership-class computing capability funded by NSF, Frontera—the largest academic supercomputer in the world—is empowering breakthrough discoveries in science and technology.
