Video on New Supercomputer at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) to be Shown at the SC08 Conference
A continuously looping video highlighting the availability of the new supercomputer at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), a DOE scientific user facility located at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, will be shown during the SC08 Conference from November 15-21, 2008, in Austin, Texas. The new video shows a speeded up view of how the processor racks for Chinook were assembled within EMSL’s raised floor space, while simultaneously informing viewers that Chinook will have 4,620 quad-core processors, 37 tera-Bytes of memory, a peak performance of 163 tera-Bytes, and will be available for users conducting computational research on aerosol formation, bioremediation, catalysis, climate change, hydrogen storage and subsurface science. The video will be one of the marketing tools about EMSL that will be included in a PNNL booth at the SC08 Conference. As the premier international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis, the SC Conference attracts scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and managers from around the world to hear technical presentations and panel discussions, participate in tutorials, and see new technology demonstrations.
