Over the past decade, SMU has pushed forward in high-performance computing (HPC), first with ManeFrame, then ManeFrame II, the NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD Advantage, and now M3. With M3 coming online this month, with its state-of-the-art CPUs, networking technologies, high memory capacity per node, and advanced interactive experiences, it has doubled the number of CPU Cores in the Data Center available for optimized high-level programming environments such as MATLAB, Python, and R. Another improvement is the unified Work storage system which allows researchers to more seamlessly transfer data between the SuperPod and M3!

On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, a team from Oregon State University visited SMU to learn more about our high-performance computing environment, the NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, and research support services. Oregon State recently announced the launch of a $200 million research and education center. Since their facility will not open its doors until 2025, they wanted to talk to other universities about setting up successful research services, a NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, and support staff. SMU’s expertise will help OSU meet its timeline to establish its new world-class center with a focus on Artificial Intelligence. Continue reading SMU SuperPod Gets Visit from Oregon State University
From November 13 to 17, 2022, Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Downtown Dallas was home to Supercomputing 2022 (SC22), where leading minds and vendors in high-performance computing came together to share knowledge and celebrate recent innovations. SMU made its presence known at the annual event with an engaging exhibit area as well as exclusive tours of the University Data Center! Continue reading SMU Gallops into Supercomputing 2022!
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
