Impact January 2016

Comet is for Gateways

Just a few months after coming online as part of the XSEDE network of resources, Comet is making an impact. During the quarter that ended September 30, there were 3,310 gateway users across all XSEDE systems. There were 64,377 research jobs run by all gateways across all systems during the quarter, and 86 percent of them were run on either Comet or SDSC's data-intensive Gordon supercomputer. "That's a notable level of usage for a new machine," said SDSC Deputy Director Shawn Strande. Read more

The power of open source software tools

Software tools make the process of using supercomputing more efficient for users, consultants and administrators, while helping them gain control of their computing environment. Many of the software tools mentioned in this article are currently being transitioned to XSEDE service provider sites. Read more

Penguin decay

A team of theoretical high-energy physicists in the Fermilab Lattice and MILC Collaborations at the University of Illinois has published a new high-precision calculation that could significantly advance the indirect search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). The calculation applies to a particularly rare decay of the B meson (a subatomic particle), which is sometimes also called a "penguin decay" process. The team's high precision lattice QCD calculation required large-scale computational resources, including XSEDE resources. Read more
