Me & My Supercomputer

Datastar is the 2500 CPU supercomputer I do most of my work on. Until today I had never seen it in person. Behind me are just a few of the racks that make up the computer. The room was loud and alternatively very hot and very cold.

  1. Cool. How did you arrange a tour? I didn’t think the SDSC server rooms were open to the public.

  2. I was there to see a lecture, and the person responsible for the super computer room started chatting with me & my lab mate, and offered to give us a tour.

    It’s not open to the public, sure, but I don’t think it’s hard to get a tour. I know of several people that have done it. You might be able to just walk in and ask the right person for a tour!
