HPCwire: LSU has announced its plans for a new supercomputer called Tezpur, which will advance the university's standing into the top-tier high-performance computing environment. It will be one of the most powerful supercomputers owned by any university in the nation and will be one of the top 50 most powerful supercomputers in the world. With more than 15 teraflops of capacity, Tezpur will outperform LSU's SuperMike, and provide nearly three times SuperMike's computational speed.
The new commodity linux cluster will be called Tezpur -- named for one of the world's hottest peppers -- and the platform will be true to its namesake. Tezpur will consist of a Linux Intel Cluster built by Dell Inc. that will deliver more than 11 million hours of computational resources and be capable of performing approximately 15 trillion
numerical operations per second.
