The MIT Lincoln Laboratory established a new supercomputing center in April to provide more than 1,000 MIT researchers with access to high-performance computing (HPC) cluster nodes. The Lincoln Laboratory Supercomputing Center (LLSC) features an interactive, on-demand parallel computing system running thousands of processors that will enable MIT researchers “to process larger sets of sensor data, create higher-fidelity simulations, and develop entirely new algorithms,” according to information on the lab’s site. The center is also “extremely” green, with computers running 93 percent carbon-free, according to information from MIT. Albert Reuther, manager of LLSC, said the center is unlike other supercomputing centers because of its “focus on interactive supercomputing for high-performance data analysis” and relatively low carbon footprint.
