A New Era of Research Computing: The NVIDIA DGX SuperPod

Over the past year, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) has worked tirelessly to obtain, install, and configure one of the most powerful computing platforms in the United States geared specifically towards artificial intelligence research. Today, we introduce you to the NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD™ at SMU: Continue reading A New Era of Research Computing: The NVIDIA DGX SuperPod

A New Chapter in SMU’s Computing History: ManeFrame III

ManeFrame III logoSince 2014, one name has been synonymous with high-performance computing for research at SMU: ManeFrame. With that first iteration, SMU researchers received a drastic improvement in computing power for their complex workloads. ManeFrame II improved upon that power, now providing services to all disciplines with the help of a robust research services team. Today, SMU is happy to announce that ManeFrame III (M3) is on the way to the Hilltop! Continue reading A New Chapter in SMU’s Computing History: ManeFrame III

Meet the Jetsons

Students building Jetsons Cluster
Students building Jetsons Cluster

This summer, our students working with the Research and Data Science Team designed and built a cluster supercomputer. The cluster is composed of 16 NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ Developer Kits, which are small, powerful computers that fit in the palm of their hand. The cluster can be used for projects ranging from training and running AI/ML models for image classification, object detection, segmentation, and speech processing applications to running molecular dynamics simulations of drug-protein interactions.

Conner Ozenne, a junior Computer Science major and one of the students working on the project commented, Continue reading Looking to the STARS with the Jestons

CRC Kicks Off Spring 2021 HPC Workshop Series

HPCIf you have been wondering how you can take advantage of the raw processing power of SMU’s ManeFrame II, you’ll have several chances this spring. The Center for Scientific Computation is offering several “hands-on” training sessions this semester. Continue reading CRC Kicks Off Spring 2021 HPC Workshop Series

Your Portal to High-Performance Computing is Now Available

HPCWe are excited to announce the immediate availability of the new HPC OnDemand Web Portal for ManeFrame II. The portal provides an integrated, single web-based access point for High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources on ManeFrame II (M2) and is open to the entire SMU research community.
