The second issue of the UL HPC newsletter is the occasion to review some statistics of the platform and its current capacities, while detailing the milestones completed in 2015, whether in terms of hardware or software developments.
We will also come back to the two HPC Schools organized last year, and offer testimonials of achievements obtained on our infrastructure.
Moreover, the planned developments for 2016 will be introduced. Many exciting challenges are waiting for us ahead, among which a new data center with cutting-edge cooling technologies, new official missions and mandates from the rectorate and the business opportunities around the HPC services we deliver since 2007.
Finally, you have probably noticed the recent interest around the HPC and Big Data thematic at the national and international level (through articles in Wort.lu around the ICPEI initiatives for instance). The UL remains deeply involved at this level and we will keep you updated in the coming months as regards the developments on these topics, including our incoming implication in PRACE.
