"State-of-the-art computational resources have been pivotal in making UCSC one of the nation's leading centers for research in numerical astrophysics and planetary science," explained Shawfeng Dong, Associate Project Scientist and HPC System Administrator at UCSC. "Hyades dramatically increases our ability to address some of the most fundamental scientific questions of our time."
The supercomputer is being used by the Theoretical Astrophysics at
Ramirez-Ruiz and his team of students use computer simulations to explore some of the most extraordinary events in the universe, such as planet formation or the destruction of a star by a black hole. "When a star travels too close to a black hole, powerful tidal forces stretch the star and then rip it apart before it is digested by the black hole," continued Ramirez-Ruiz. "To simulate this process, we employ a great deal of computational predictive analysis including radiation hydrodynamics."
Ramirez-Ruiz explained that UCSC's goal is to make Hyades available not only to faculty and graduate students but also to undergraduate students and even local community college students. "We see ourselves as a center for excellence, helping to train students in using high-performance computing resources to solve scientific problems. These skills will help them get recruited by top universities and companies after graduation."
Dell and Terascala provide a high-performance storage appliance for UCSC that manages everything including servers, network, storage and file system components. Workload and workflow performance tuning is done through Terascala's TeraOS management platform.
"We are the only Lustre-based platform that integrates and manages all of those components into a turnkey storage appliance with seamless Lustre integration that is easily scalable and highly available," concluded
Terascala is the fast data company. Terascala storage appliances dramatically accelerate the time to insight for organizations that rely on simulation, analysis, and modeling tools to bring new products and innovation to market. Exclusively available through strategic partners Dell and
